What's your experience working with drones? Beginners are welcome!

Professionally, I design autonomous land and sea vehicles for the military. With respect to hobbyist aerial drones I just started and am still learning to fly them.

What kind of equipment do you own/operate (ArduCopter 3DR Hexacopter, Phantom, AR Drone etc...) You don't need to have your own equipment to join the group.

1000mm hexa - APM2.5/ArduCopter, 30 lbs thrust. Prototype AP platform (no camera mount yet). 400mm quad - MultiWii Lite, ~8 lbs thrust. Airframe is entirely 1/8" laser cut acrylic and screws. HeliMax 1SQ micro quadcopter - Palm sized. Doesn't do much but is fun to fly indoors. Blade MCPxV2 micro CP heli - Also doesn't do much but is fun to fly indoors.
