The Drone User Group Network is an organization for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of flying robots for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. All experience levels are welcome.

We get together as a community to share tips, experiences, and of course to do some flying. We work to educate ourselves about how to build and use drones in a safe and respectful manner and to educate the public about the positive role aerial robotics can play in our society. Most importantly, we think that flying robots are a lot of fun!

NYC/NJ DUG™ is a chapter member of the Drone User Group™ Network, an association of community organizations that promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.

Please read our Standard Operating Procedures and Guidelines document if you are new to operating drones.
