Drone Swap Meet / Marketplace

Do you have :
- Used or crashed drones or drone parts you want to sell? Salvageable ESCs, motors, frame parts, antennas, receivers, FPV?
- Got extra electronics or R/C equipment or tools in the trunk of your car? - extra soldering irons, crimper, screwdrivers, toolboxes, radio transmitters / receivers, FPV gear? Stuff from your older projects or legacy gear from "back in the day" that is taking up space in your garage?
- Extra building materials - bought a huge carbon fiber sheet and used only a little bit of it? got a huge box of screws when you only needed one? bring your extra stuff, maybe someone needs it!
- Custom parts - developed a cool 3-d printed, CNC, or handmade part that might be useful for others to use? like a cool landing gear or camera mount or breakout PCB or something?
- Services - offering any soldering, modding, building, or drone repair services? do you have a special skill that would be useful to drone operators like prototyping, carbon fiber moldmaking, software dev?

Then come to our first DC DUG swap meet / marketplace event and sell or barter your merchandise! Or come to socialize and talk tech with other members!

    Great event! I sold a few things, but I end buying a lot more stuff :-D

    Will have extra Sorbothane Vibration Isolation Square Pad 30 Duro (.25" (0.64 cm) Thick

    July 14, 2013

    • Robert

      I would love to try out some Sorbothane but I don't want to spend over $30 for a whole square foot.

      July 19, 2013

    • Jimmy C

      I was thinking $0.50 per square inch. I have them cut up in 1x2, 2x4, and 2x2 pieces. The 12x12 sheet is much bigger than I needed. I'm not trying to make money just recoup my costs.

    I actually went through and found out I have tons of stuff to sell, including lots of brand new unused stuff and some used-like-new stuff. I have a brand new ST360 quadcopter kit (frame, escs, motors), plenty of frame parts (including brand new 450 frames, and arms), a lot of propellers, a HD 1080p RedLeaf camera in like-new condition, and much much more. I also have a "crash bin" that has plenty of usable and salvagable parts, and lots of things in bulk like screws/hardware/wires that I could sell bits of

    July 18, 2013

    • Christopher V.

      Also a PX4FMU, PX4FLOW, and a some various brand new servos and things.

      July 18, 2013

  • Stephen P.

    I have a bunch of stuff to sell:

    FYETech X4 frame w/FY-91Q Controller, Compass and GPS.
    (2) 3DR Pitch stabilized fiber glass camera mount , w/ metal gear servo.
    APM 1 Controller w/GPS
    XAircraft FC1212-S and AHRS-S

    Hoping to sell it all!!

    Great I need help with telemetry. Telemetry does not work for me.

    Also I need to tune PIDs. PID tuners please help me.

    Also I need to buy some of those small 4 wire connectors for the Rx, etc. Where do I buy those?

    July 18, 2013

    • Christopher V.

      I can sell you 4-wire housings and pre-crimped wires. and i can help with the other things too.

    July 3, 2013
