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

Experienced with an SM450 quadcopter and Ardupilot. Heavy experience in embedded electronics, general mechanics and systems manufacturing.

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.

Up until 2007, I flew electric and nitro RC planes. Created some custom delta wing profiles with a hotwire. But I put that on hold while life interrupted. I'm starting to pull my head out of the sand an experience the hobbyist equipment available.

What events would you like to see this group have?

Meet and greets, demonstrations, competitions, and BUILD GROUPS! Maybe lectures on aspects of copter types - like Arducopter software, building a frame, tailoring the electronics, batteries, etc.

How did you hear about this group?
