Robert Andrews is a composites technician responsible for development, fabrication, and assembly of Flexrotor. His early interest in building model aircraft led him to learn and experiment with epoxy, carbon fiber and aramid fabrics, incorporating them into his designs. Robert has made a living building large racing sailboats, catamarans, and kayaks. More recently he has been involved in designing and operating multicopters including participating in the development of open-sourced autopilot systems. He is an avid surfer who has built a reputation designing and building custom epoxy surfboards out of his shop near Pacific City. After a decade on the Oregon coast, he and his wife relocated to the Columbia River Gorge.
