            Within the last couple of years, the usage of drones in both the public and private (military) sector has exploded. People are talking about drones, building drones, and something most people didn't know of a few years ago is now a household name. Build a Drone will not only teac...h you how to build your very own drone, but will explain their history in the military and the impact they will have-and are starting to have-on our everyday lives. Author Barry Davies has built drones for DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) and AAI (one of America's largest drone manufacturers), as well as six experimental ones for MIT. He not only understands their use in the world, but knows the ins-and-outs of how they can be created and handled. Explained in simple terms with full-color step-by-step directions, Davies will explain how to build your very own drone from ones created specifically for this book. Whether you plan on using drones for recreation or a more serious purpose (from search and rescue through farming to scanning construction work on a high-rise apartment buildings), Build a Drone will make sure that you not only understand how to construct a drone, but the proper and safe ways to maintain and handle them.

            One of the most famous figures in world gliding, Dick Georgeson spent much of his childhood at Irishman Creek Station with his uncle, renowned engineer and inventor Bill Hamilton. Learning to glide in England in 1949, he was soon completely hooked; by 1951 he hd his first New Zea...land gliding record, and first world record by 1960. In 1979 the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI) awarded him the gold medal, the highest award for flying, followed in 1985 by the Lilienthal Medal Medal, the highest award for gliding. In 1979 he received and MBE for services to aviation in New Zealand.His story interweaves a fascinating personal biography with gripping descriptions of many of his record-breaking flights. A bold pioneer in long crosswind wave flight, he pursued his addiction with courage and tenacity. Tribute is paid to other pioneers and pilots; the evolution of sailplanes from the fabric-covered, 'wings and wires', open-cockpit glider he first flew is described, and he tells of some of the risks and accidents associated with throwing oneself at the mercy of weather and terrain. The book is introduced with a foreword by Einar Enevoldson, former NASA test pilot and mastermind of the Perlan Project, the attempt to research the polar vortex in the stratosphere in a sailplane with the American adventurer Steve Fossett. Anyone with an interest in high adventure of any kind will find this book utterly absorbing.
