I'm an FPV (first person viewing) pilot living in Hobart. I've been building and flying planes and UAV systems for about 4 years now. I had a friend who lived in Murdunna, and myself and another guy decided to try and get him a generator and supplies after the first big day of the 2013 bushfires. We found a back way to get access to the restricted areas and decided to take the opportunity to transport more generators and supplies to other people we met on our travels. We averaged 2 to 3 trips a day with two vehicles travelling as far as Eaglehawk. I always keep a quadcopter or similar in the back of my car so i flew around every chance I got in an effort to show everybody the full extent of the damage. I had never seen anything like it. I fly multicopters as a hobby, but hope to get a commercial license soon. For now I will just enjoy making videos for youtube and showing off the potential for these amazing machines.
