Thank you for checking out this campaign:
Its aim is to raise money for Henry, an Ugandan who loves airplanes and everything that is connected with flying.
Henry and his friends build amazing airplanes out of scrap materials they are able to find. Unfortunately, those planes don’t fly, they are missing expensive motors, batteries, propellers and transmitter.
The economy of Uganda is far behind the western countries which makes impossible for Henry to afford expensive equipment.
‘Uganda's yearly minimum wage is $95.00 in International Currency. International Currency is a measure of currency based on the value of the United States dollar in 2009. There are 121 countries with a higher Minimum Wage then Uganda, and Uganda is in the bottom percent of all countries based on the yearly minimum wage rate.’

300$ should be enough to buy:
-2.4 GHzradio transmitter
- brushless motors, ESCs, set of propellers, adapters
- batteries, battery charger, power source
- cutting mat and cutting blades
-hot glue gun
-simulator, usb adpter,
If we manage to collect more money the FPV equipment will be also bought.
Please , if you can support the campaign by donating money to the causeso Henry can also enjoy the hobby and spread the love of the aviation among the youngsters in his neighbourhood.
