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

I've been flying multi-rotors for a bit over two years. I use a combination of still and video equipment to photograph events, crops, real estate, and anything else that needs to be done from the air, mostly for free.

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.

I fly a scratch built tricopter (KK blackboard, decommissioned) and quadcopter (KK2.1) as well as a cheap kit tricopter (Arduflyer) and an Aquacopter (Arduflyer) on load from a friend. I fly FPV with FatShark Attitudes. I'm currently designing and testing a brushless gimbal that I prototype on my 3D printer. I also fly several fixed wings that have no drone capabilities.

What events would you like to see this group have?

Build workshops, Flying days

How did you hear about this group?

I've been searching Meetup for RC groups near DC for several years, now there is one! A random customer told me about it.

Introduction

I got into RC with the intention of doing areal photography. It turned out to be a lot more involved than I thought! But this hobby has the perfect combination of my loves of photography, electronics, prototyping, and robotics.
