When I started MyGeekShow in 2011 I didn’t really have a specific mission or purpose, and I found it difficult to prioritize were I should spend my time and energy. I wanted to have a lofty goal that would push me to become proficient in almost every aspect of RC airplanes, and the concept of flying an RC airplane across the entire United States fit that perfectly. It would require great skill and experience in nearly everything related to RC airplanes, from prop selection to long range communication to autonomous failsafe navigation. I set up a 5 year plan (was later reduced to 4) that would take me from throwing gliders around to flying at highway speeds for over an hour. The years past by as I gained experience and skills, and with the help of my AWESOME supporters on YouTube and DIYDrones, I was able to make the attempt in June of 2014. You’ll have to watch all the videos below to get the whole story, but encountered new, never experienced challenges despise extensive preparation. These challenges forced the trip to be ended early for safety reasons. I REALLY want to try again, someday.
