About my MAV blog

Why, Who, How, ...

I’ve been interested in radio controlled airplanes since i was a kid. When I grew older, I became fascinated by UAV’s. Since I prefer small planes over big ones, I became even more fascinated by MAV’s.

In 2005, during my one but last year of engineering studies, I read in a popular science magazine about a MAV being designed in my own university! Obviously, I found my perfect thesis subject a few weeks later :-) Thanks to that thesis, I know a lot more about the technology behind MAV’s and UAV’s.

Oh yes, one day i’ll have my own, and I hope I’ll be able to say that I made it myself!
