Trent has just posted an update video explaining his recent absence from the online scene, identifying the fact that his shop is now back online and hinting at things come from MyGeekShow over the coming weeks.
Clearly he has been through the ringer these last few months, but appears to have returned fully charged (pun intended), and raring to get back into it.
Notably, Trent has acknowledged the additional challenges presented to his USA Trip by ongoing developments relating to the use of RC Model Aircraft in the United States.
The idea that the reinterpretation or reformation of long established guidelines and policies might stifle the aspiration of pioneering individuals like Trent is pretty disheartening. There are indeed ways of circumventing the chaos, as we have recently seen with the coming out of Google's Project Wing, but this type of solution is sadly beyond the budget of individuals and backyard innovators like Trent. Hopefully sanity will prevail and that, when the uncertainty in this critical area of policy ends, the defining moment of his (so far) 4 year long project will not be relegated to the shelf of impossible dreams.
