Who? What? Where? Why?

My name is Anthony and I am a MultiRotor builder, flyer, and enthusiast based in New York City. I have a background in aviation and business and currently, photography and video projects are what I spend my time on. My aviation background consists of flying aircraft ranging from light single-engine airplane to large jets and I also hold a CFII. Since leaving full time aviation work, I have gone on to own and operate a few businesses and also completed an MBA at Fordham University. The possibility of capturing aerial video for creative projects without the need for full scale aircraft is what first made me curious about MultiRotors.

I started this website for pleasure and as a way to share what I learn. I’d like it to be a well rounded online information resource for MultiRotor enthusiasts. My main interest is centered around using MultiRotors for visual arts, however, I also find other aspects of their potential use very interesting. Practical applications such as Surveying, Inspection, Search and Rescue, and Tactical Operations for Military and Police Personnel are things I definitely see happening in the future. As for Amazon delivery…well, giving thieves a new way to steal packages and copters may not be as cool as everyone seems to think it is.

Below are the 3 of the machines I have put together and I am always building/selling/modifying something at any given moment. Take a look at my build logs for some details if you’re interested in building your own. Happy and safe flying to all!

Drones: A 360 Degree View – David A. Andelman, the editor of World Policy Journal, gave me a call to secure photo usage for this article. They chose my heavy lift quadcopter to represent this piece on drones.

Study Finds 3D Printing Could Save The Average Home Up To $2,000 A Year – I ordered a set of 3D printable landing gear I designed through a person offering 3D printing services on MakeXYZ.com. After the job was successfully completed, I was pleased — so I emailed this person a photo to use in his MakeXYZ portfolio. The next thing I know my image is appearing in a TechCrunch article. The 3D printer guy ends up being John Biggs, an editor at TechCrunch. I contacted him to ask for credit, but no response. I consider this to be more evidence of how professionalism has departed the profession of journalism. There is no longer the feeling that one needs to ask permission or give credit before using another person’s work.
