    Wow what a great time. Serious fun to hang out with all of you. Our drone fights are the runaway hit of Maker Faire! Now repair that gear and get ready to do it all again tomorrow. If you have gear to sell, motors, rotors, ESCs, etc. bring it! Remember the earlier you arrive in the A.M. The easier it is to park. If you have pictures and video of the events please post them for all to see. Game in again tomorrow!

    After registering with maker fair, an email from maker fair mentioned we should contact Game of Drones for tickets and other details. What is the best way to contact Marque?

    Sounds like fun - for those of us who supported your Kickstarter project, will we receive our drones prior to the Maker Faire and have enough time to build them for flight-n-fight?

    1 · March 26, 2014

    • Elias D.

      We are pushing for that. We will keep you posted on the progress.
