i'm 16 (french) and i have a rare illness (very painfull) for 3 years, preventing me from going to the school and from doing what make all the teenagers of my age do (biking, sailing, even see my friends etc...), i'm stuck at home.
To occupy days when I feel not too bad, i decided to realize a dream of 2 years ago: making a quadcopter,
with the time this project has evolved (just like the needed budget).
I started this project alone, from nothing, just with my knowlegdes from hours and hours of forum's reading and my purse.
Few month later, I find the ardupilot community, full of advices very apreciated and helpfull, she was one of the most active and friendly i've ever saw (may be the only).
Now, the construction of my quad is well advanced but really slowed (my purse doesn't fill from itself ).
So, I got an very old diy plane with the aim to restore it with what I have at home, trying to have no cost.
I want to thank all the community (you) because she help me to pass through very difficults moments and otherwise I would never have made my project a success.
You taught me a lot, i discovered a new world with incredibles people and communities which, without you I would never have known the existence.
I also discovered that we could live of his passion, through his passion.
For all that, I can just tell you
