Profile Information

About Me:
I work full time in the field of data network analytics and I am also a keen RC flyer with 25 years experience covering competitive aerobatics, scale and gliding. I hold a UK CAA permission for commercial aerial work and conduct aerial videography as a self-funding hobby.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I mostly fly multirotors and now I'm also looking to get into fixed wing platforms for photogrammetry/surveying/terrain modelling applications.
