Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Been flying gas-engined RPV's so long ago my gear all had radio tubes in them. Developed college curricular materials for the use of remote probes and sensors for data acquisition.

Want to develop tethered UAVS that can stay aloft for two weeks straight or more.
