Public Drone Shows

There are two “Drone Shows” coming up around May 1st that might be an inspiring use of this MeetUp time, see links below. We are working on a “Silicon Valley 2.0 Robot STEM Zone Sea Land Air & Space” for the sUSB Expo and are thinking of bringing it back later this year to the Exploration Center.

    I'm in. I'm always looking for other droneheads and places close by to fly with. I need the practice and I hesitate flying alone.

    Hey G!!

    I am teaching a rocket design class at Stanford and have a opportunity for a uav payload for deployment at 40,000 ft. If you know of someone at SVUAV that wants a ride to 40k and a chance to fly at high altitude, we own the airspace and you can connect us.

    Hi All, The FAA announcement about Hollywood UAV Exemptions has been a "Game Changer" this week so I am proposing I/Team get some stakeholder speakers organized on this issue, as it's effects trickles down to us all, for an educational event at the end of this quarter. All The Best... G

    Bad News... We haven't been able to secure a Flight Range at UCSC (Yet). Good News we have meet with the UAV Product Manager @ http://www.altadevices.com/applications-uavs.php and are proposing an Indoor UCSC Event with a "Show & Tell" of the record setting all day Solar UAVs flight their "Thin Films Solar Cells" were part of. Kind of a Monterey Bay Green AeroSpace Activity for all of us to bring UAV Rigs and Related Technology to. Exact Date/Location TBD.

    Hi there, we will host an drone event at UC Berkeley on 9/13. Anyone can help out? http://www.eventbrite.com/e/drones-the-aerial-swiss-army-knife-tickets-12837006833?aff=es2&rank=0

      What kind of help do you need?

      August 28

    • Shu Z.

      Thanks Ray! So far, DJI, 3D Robotics, Ehang, and AR Drone might join us. We'd like to invite more drone makers and drone related companies to join the event. We also look for promotional partner and sponsorship.

    Is the Public UAV Fun Flight on Sept. 5 still on?

    August 28

  • Terry Y.

    I'll be there on Sept. 5. In the mean time, I'm going over to Lover's Point in Pacific Grove Friday morning and do some flying. All are welcome to join me.

    Dang, I was looking forward to getting involved. If anyone needs another set of hands or another brain, I'd love to help out with any project.

    We have looked at this year more realistically and have decided to have 2x Public Fun Flight at 2x Universities this year. Next year have 4x Public Fun Flights at 2x Universities and 2x Colleges. Setting up Flight Ranges with the proper approval is the gating factor. My apologies for the inconveniences. All The Best... G

    June 18, 2014

  • Terry Y.

    I don't know about anyone else, but if the Fun Flight at UCSC doesn't take off on Friday, I still want to fly. Anyone else have the same thoughts? We can still meet on Friday. Any suggestions?

    June 18, 2014

  • Jim H.

    Can someone tell me, is this still happening this Friday? If so, exactly where? I'm unclear on both of these decisions.

    June 17, 2014

  • Ned H.

    Planning on riding bikes up to campus, where exactly will the demo be performed?

    June 16, 2014

  • Rick W.

    darn... was looking forward to it

    June 6, 2014

  • G S.

    We have been unable to fully secure the flight operations preparations at UCSC or Watsonville AMA Field so we need to push this event out to give us more prep time. Our apologies and we will keep you informed...

    Where exactly at UCSC are we supposed to meet on Friday?

    Hi, I'm interested in talking to UAV/Drone flyers with experience using these wonderful little machines to fly cameras - be warned, I'm a total newbie ha ha!

    Hi guys,... September? That seems.. Far.

    • Cabrillo R.

      If I can get a small group of professionals and hobbyists such as yourselves, to demo to some students, we can make this happen. Email me at [masked]

    I firmly believe in flying safely and the buddy system. I wouldn't mind meeting other droneheads on the bay.
