I'm looking forward to it! Although I live in Monmouth County, I would love to visit your facility before September. I have been advocating for a kids' makerspace in this area and would be very interested in seeing what you are doing in South Jersey. From your facebook page, it looks like you are doing some very interesting stuff!
Will try and make the next meet.
Thanks for the greeting. I look forward to meeting and learning from the group.
Just in case there was any confusion, I want to note that I meant to indicate that I am skilled in writing algorithms that control aerospace vehicles - which we generally call "control laws". I am not involved in the legal profession :-). I won't be able to make this week's meetup, but I hope to meet you in the future. I notice that your site features the pixhawk controller. How do you like this system?
Thanks Lavon! I will definitely be there. My suspicion is that the FAA will regain control of the UAV environment for obvious safety reasons. As a pilot, I feel that their concern is totally logical, but their approach is always very heavy handed.. A bird can do serious damage and I've had my share of close encounters. But, an encounter at 200mph with a 5 or 10 lb UAV would be disastrous. My assumption is that commercial use of UAVs will be limited to rated pilots, with specific credentials.
Hello Lavon. it would be great to schedule a e-drone meet up soon.
