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

I have had much experience building and hacking on robots big and small. I spent years leading a small team to build several models of autonomous humandoid robots (doing mechanical, electronics and pcb design, and software both on bare metal atmega, blackfin, and with OS, linux and various real time os). For my research assistantship I am building a sensor-laden car with LIDAR, GPS and IMU sensors. I'm also into photography and building other stuff besides robots too!

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

Tons of R/C equipment as well as several hexacopters and quadcopters. Many of them are using ArduCopter. I am customizing ArduCopter software to enable telemetry commands (such as waypoints) to be inserted from a Raspberry Pi (mounted on-board) which will do some form of motion planning / computer vision. I have two FPV systems and all sorts of cameras and gadgets.
