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

I went from the Estes ProtoX to full 550mm custom Ardupilot build in a month. Now we manufacture our own line if quad-copter frames called the R-Quad.

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.

We only fly our own platforms, the RQ250, RQ350, RH850, and a 550 is in the works. For auto pilot we prefer ArduCopter over DJI, but use all the smaller boards like Naze32, CC3D, NanoWii and KK2. Fatshark FPV setups on all platforms and a dozen ProtoX's for practice.

What events would you like to see this group have?

FPV drone races

How did you hear about this group?
