Build Party Follow-Up Workshop

Just in case you missed the build party on Dec 14, or need some additional assistance with your setup after the build party, we're holding a follow-up session.

It's for:

1. Finishing up your guided kit!
2. Calibration, verification, and testing of your build!
3. Hanging out, discussing, pondering.
4. Fixing any problems with your kit if there were missing or defective parts.

Note: Please bring everything you need including your tools or let me know if there's something you'd like to borrow

We were invited to use HOBBY-PLACE workshop for this event. See the event location for address.

    The build follow-up was great and I finished my hex-copter with a lot of kind, patient help from Christopher. The hex flew last night! Thanks again for all the advise and help.

    This was my meet up and it was great! I learned a lot and everyone was super helpful in teaching me how to build my first drone.

    How late will you be there? I'll have to pick up my car at the Vienna metro and then get to Gaithersburg - it may take some time.

    Christopher - did you say there was a web site that had the instructions for a build? I'm working on a hex-copter and am having trouble with the wiring (what goes where). I'll be at the follow-up tomorrow. See you then and thank you for all you generous help to us newbies.

    If I bring in a setup with a KK black board will anyone there be able to check it out? I have it pretty tuned in but it could possibly be better.

    • Christopher V.

      I know Multiwii and APM and OpenPilot but my knowledge of KK boards is spotty. If you're just looking to do tuning, I could probably be useful though.

    I am working on building a tbs discovery pro to use for cinematography. I am almost done with the build but I am brand new to this whole UAV thing so I have a bunch of questions about software and configurations of the naza v2 and gimbal. I would love to come to this meet up. I hope this is the appropriate group for me considering I'm still a beginner.

      Gaithersburg would be awesome for me as I work in this area.

      OK. It's a bit of a hike for me (I used to work near there and i remember it took me about an hour to get up there most days) but if you can schedule it, I'll haul the stuff out there. Send me a message to confirm.

    Thanks so much - I couldn't make it in on Saturday night because out where I live the roads were icing over. I'm soooo close to being finished, I think.
