Maryland Fly-in and Presentation on the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge

Let's get together and fly as a community.  All experiences levels are welcome. Flying will commence at 2pm.

We will also have a presentation on the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge (wcUAVc) starting at 1pm. Aliyah Pandolfi, Founder of the wcUAVc and CEO of Kashmir-Robotics, will talk about her recent fact finding mission to South Africa where the competition will be held.

    Here is a video I put together of the event shot with my prototype home-made gimbal quad. http://youtu.be/BxgeX17830g

      I was betting you'd split the uprights at some point. Good Work :)

      Nicely done!

    My first fly-in. Had a great time and made it through all of my batteries without crashing :)

    Wow. So many drones and people interested in drones. Beginners and experts are welcome here.

    Is there anybody coming today who has experience tuning APM for a fixed wing airplane, preferably a flying wing like x5.

    Need some help guys. I was flying my quad yesterday and had a bad crash. I have spare props but need a NTM Prop Drive 28 Series Spinner. Can I borrow it from someone for tomorrow? Mine should be arriving sometime next week. Its my first quad and only had 10min flight time, really looking forward to meet you guys to get some good tips.

      Thanks Steve, see you in couple of hours...

    Hi, is this the same location we will be flying as well? Could not see a lot of flying room when looking at the aerial map.
    Thanks

      Yes. For the fly-in we use to meet at the parking lot at coordinates[masked], [masked]
      It's funny but Google Maps show that there is nothing there, however Yahoo Maps shows the parking lot.

      For directions from the Grace Community Church to the fly-in field just follow the route included in this link

    Hi Tim,

    The email sent out this morning has an embedded link to google maps which links to a different Grace Community Church in Frederick. Just wanted to confirm if the address listed here is the one we need to be at. Thanks!

    January 30, 2014

    • Timothy R.

      Thanks for the catch! I just emailed out a correction. Apparently there are two Grace Churches in Frederick, MD. The correct one is at 5102 Old National Pike.

    Hey all,
    Would you be interested in flying at our field, Konterra Model Air Park in Laurel MD? I need to vet the event time and date through our members at our meeting this January 10th, 730PM but I thought I'd extend the invitation. We're located at: 39° 4.958', -76°[masked]'

      Has there been any introduction of DC-DUG to DC-RC? DC-RC has a beautiful field out in Boyds, MD.

    • Timothy R.

      I've had some good discussions with DC-RC and they are very welcoming. The main challenge with them and most AMA affiliated fields is that you need to be an AMA member to fly at their facilities. Many of us are AMA members, but our preference is to hold events at a location where everyone can participate. Our hope is to be able to find a way to make this work in the future. We appreciate all the great work that other flying communities in the area are doing and look forward to connecting with them.

    Hello everyone!
    I will be bringing a custom made quad to the fly in but need help getting the radio synced up with the quad along with a few other things. I would be more than happy to make a donation to the group if someone could help me out. The craft has been flown before but not by me, I’m just starting out. Thanks!
