Is there a better way to control a drone

Today's guest thinks there is, and he’s here to talk about it. Dr. Scott Parazynski is a highly decorated physician and astronaut recently inducted into the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame. Scott has lived and traveled all over the world spending many of his grade school years in places like Senegal, Lebanon, Iran and Greece. A graduate of Stanford University and Medical School, he went on to train at Harvard and in Denver in emergency medicine. In 1992 he was selected to join NASA’s Astronaut Corps and eventually flew 5 space shuttle missions and conducted 7 spacewalks. In October 2007, Scott led the space walking team on STS 120, during which he performed four EVAs. In addition to being a diver and an accomplished mountaineer, Scott is also a commercial instrument multi-engine and seaplane rated pilot. On May 20th, 2009 he became the 1st, and so far only, astronaut to climb to the top of Mount Everest.

He is a prolific product developer and serves on the boards of several companies. He recently launched Fluidity Technologies, a technology innovation company focused on redefining movement through 3 dimensional space. Its mission is to simplify and improve motion in an increasingly complex world. In the fall of 2018, Fluidity Technologies launched the FT Aviator, its first single-handed flight control device for drones, designed to dramatically increase the precision of drone flight while tremendously simplifying it. In this edition of the Drone Radio Showm, Scott talks about the fluidity of FT Aviator, the challenges of starting a new drone company and how seeing the world from space and Mt Everest compares with creating a new product
