Hi Martin,

I am not sure if this is what you are asking for, but considering your company's experience in power electronics, you might just conisder developing high end/robust (safe) line of brushless motor controllers for UAVs. Perhaps you could have a product line that can drive multiple (2, 4 or 6) high power brushless motors and can be connected to the autopilot on various interfaces like CAN (or UART or I2C altough I would definitely go for CAN). You can then report back status of the motors to the autopilot. I also have power electronics background and immediately see a number of issues with the standard ESCs that are used in the budget UAVs. I do believe there is a market for this.

Here at Alpha Power Electronics we are starting to make the PCB's for the Paparazzi product line. Does anyone in the development list have any suggestions of how we can develop business?

regards, Martin (Principal)

Hi, here in Utah we are using Paparazzi for precision agriculture applications. Look at for more details.

I hope people don't mind me asking: I'm curious what people on this
list do for a living/with UAVs? Also, where they are.

I'll start: I work for Google (in security), UAVs are purely a hobby
for me, mostly flying an ardrone2 (which sucks, but I have one - and
they're surprisingly robust), but I also have a first generation
arducopter I'm considering giving a brain transplant (why did anyone
think an arduino was a good computer for a UAV?) plus considering
building something more modern from scratch with camera gimbal... all
I need is some spare time :-)

I'm based in Wales, but also have a place in London.
