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
    We should organize this kind of swap/marketplace in a regular basis

      you were waiting for news on the royal baby and you forgot about the swap-meet?

      July 22, 2013

  • Jens

    I have the following items to sell:

    Walkera Devo Transmitter
    Quadcopter frame complete with Ardupilot, and motors from the first build.

    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 18, 2013

  • Ken

    Will this morph into a fly-in...perhaps...maybe

    July 3, 2013

    • Gustavo Z.
