Princeton Tiger Drone!
Lian Pin has just moved to New Jersey to begin his year-long sabbatical at Princeton University, his alma mater. He has just finished building the first Conservation Drone in America, which is called (what else!) the Tiger Drone, after Princeton University’s mascot! Here are some sneak peek photos of the Tiger Drone, which is based on the Finwing Penguin airframe. It will be test flown in the coming days when the weather gets better.
Lian Pin will be using this drone for demonstration flights in the US, including one for a class at Duke University in the Spring. He will also be helping a water supply protection team in Massachusetts explore the use of conservation drones as a fowl deterrent tool in reservoirs.
*A big thank you to Joshua Ott who donated some much needed equipment to get Lian Pin started in the US!
