Open Lab + Quadcopters

We are really excited about the explosive growth of our club recently! Due to the overwhelming popularity and limited space, we are now limiting RSVPs to 60 until further notice. Please consider this when you RSVP, and make sure you add the number of guests in your party. In addition, if your plans change, please update your RSVP here on Meetup to allow others to take your space.

OPEN LAB (ground floor) is ALL Projects of any scale. We will break into small groups and anyone interested in doing their own thing or would like to create their own conversation group, feel free to do so. We will have space for the NAO developers and the Quadrotor builders, as well as access to soldering irons, tools, drill press, rapid prototyping machines, etc. Bring your laptop; there's Wi-Fi!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

QUADCOPTER (3rd Floor) will be a continuation of Quadcopter planning and building that will be led by Reiner Von Weber, Douglas Kuhn and John.

Have a quadcopter?

Bring it!

Thinking of building a quadcopter and don't know where to start?

Come and learn from those who've already done it!

Just curious about what a quadcopter is and want to take cool pictures to impress your friends?

All are welcome!

We will be answering all sorts of questions and sharing advice on how to build and the best resources to get parts from all over the web and in stores locally. We will have a small group meeting at least once or twice a month dedicated to building nearly all small aircraft, including blimps and jets!

NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY!

    I was impressed with the talk about making wings for people to wear. And how he designed them.

    As usual, a great meet up. Thank you to Scott and Annika for all of the guidance. It was awesome to see and hear about Brian's Arduino controlled wings and all the cool quadcopters buzzing overhead made the entire time enjoyable. Thanks - Coco and Mosa

    The open lab, brings opportunity to observe different projects in different stages of construction. Everybody is very friendly and open to questions about what they are doing. Great talk about creating robotic wings for theatrical props.

    The thing I like most is that people are really building cool stuff. The quad copters were really impressive. I hope to get one soon.

    Long weekend for me, but, I liked the 'demo' and instruction on designing the wings. It's nice to hear the steps that go into stuff like that.
