About Me:
Geography and hobbyist
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am interested in working with kids on the autism spectrum to build and fly quadrotors for several purposes; 1) as an opportunity to socialize with peers, 2) to see the world from a different perspective using mounted cameras, FPV and OSD, and 3) develop technical skills that may offer employment options down the road.

Hey Paul,

Have you seen this?

Joshua - Thanks for passing this along!  I hadn't seen it and it's very interesting.  I did some more digging on the authors of the research and intend to reach out to them.  Thank you!  I guess we all respond better when there is an intense level of engagement in the subject at hand right?  I hope to leverage that same issue when working with the hexarotor and our group of kids.  Purchasing equipment shortly!
