About Me:
I am a Physics/Engineering student

I design and fly model aircraft on my spare time, typically going for performance and aesthetics ( geometric ).

I also film and video edit as well as making music on the side.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am working on autonomous vehicles which can be used easily by the public. I think that Ardupilot takes care of that very well so I am in luck.

Currently I am an FPV pilot so not technically a UAV operator yet.

I am very excited to soon own an APM 2. The thought of constant autonomous flight is thrilling.
