As a senior at my high school we are required to complete a senior project prior to graduation. The project can be anything from building park benches to making improvements to the school but it must benefit the community in some way. I have chosen to build a UAV to provide aerial photographs for agencies here in Fairbanks, AK like Fish and Game, city planning, and for public events. I paid for all of the UAV with my Permanent Fund Dividend check and will be able to keep it after the project (most students have to donate what they make).

Next year I will begin my mechanical engineering degree at University Of Alaska Fairbanks and plan to work in the UAV or oil industry after that.


My UAV blog is here and my project web page is here.
