Individuals around the world are building relatively inexpensive aircraft (fixed wing and helicopters) that can fly autonomously. These UAV’s take pictures or videos and transmit them to the ground, follow navigational waypoints for aerial mapping and scientific surveys, and more. In this Where 2.0 session, Anderson shares a personal story of how he and his son started with model planes and added cell phones and robotic kids toys to build amazing UAV’s for less than $1,000.
