Mark is a tech specialist with a startup in NYC. With a deep love for all things tech he is a relative new comer to RC Planes. Never one to dip a toe slowly into the shallow end, he dove head first deep into the DIY side of RC planes. Starting in 2010 with the first release of the Arduino based Ardupilot Mark’s first plane was a fully autonomous drone. Since this time Mark had build numerous scratch built foamies and started building balsa based planes using CAD software.
