I hold a B.S. and M.S. AE and recently completed a Ph.D focused on Jet Propulsion. Experienced with RC aircraft since 2005. AMA member and pilot since 2007. I fly fixed wing, rotary wing, quadrotors, and everything strange in between.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Primary interest is in aircraft configuration design and exploiting AE subdisciplines to that effect. Using APM and other systems is a means of logging flight data and exploiting flight control systems to augment aircraft designs.
