AUGUST - Meetup at IHOP for Food, Fun and Yapping!

All NTDUG Events are governed by our SOP and Guidelines Document.

August is going to be HAWT.  So let's grab some food and some air conditioning!  The management at this particular IHOP Restaurant has agreed to furnish us with a power outlet or two and allow us to setup a big screen TV.

Let's get together for lunch, show some favorite video and talk about drones!

It is also important to note that the FAA has granted (by special request from the AMA) a 60 day extension for public comment on the new interpretation rule set.  I will be making a short presentation on that as well as showing some case studies relating to why the FAA is going the route they are going.  I'll wait to present when most of us are there.

If you have something you'd like to say (or a story to tell) feel free to come by and share!


**This event is rain or shine. If our venue is a wash-out, for weather or politics, an alert will be announced/posted.

The site selection committee is always looking for new and varied flying sites. If you have one in mind, or even a suggestion on what to look for send me a message to add it to a site list. If possible, please provide a description of the field, a Google/Bing map link, and a point of contact for that location (if there is one.)

Please send me a message if you would like to serve on the site selection committee as well. The committee will meet briefly, via in person or via VOIP, once or twice a month as needed to consider and select locations for the group.

Keep it safe, we look forward to seeing you (and all of your fingers) at the flight line.

    Air Conditioning?!, count me in heh heh I look forward to meeting y'all and watching a few videos. I also checked out the posted below and that looks like a class act. It's a bit of a drive but they offer so much AND have a 700 yard range! That's hard to come by. I need to dust off the sniper rifle and throw some lead down range. Multi-rotors and guns, what could be more fun than that? (clothed)

    I'm setting something up that will be a little different than a fly in.

    Just an FYI. There is a big swap meet on this day up in Denton. Not a ton of "drone" stuff usually but still a big event and lots of other fixed wing deals going on! Just wanted you guys to know. Thanks

    RE: August 9th Meet Up

    Chad -
    I Just talked to Walter Patton owner of - His place is about 35 miles east of Down town Dallas on Hwy 34 near Terrell.

    The reserve is used during winter season for hunting birds - no runway for fixed wing unless we want him to mow a path but Copters, Quads and Hexes etc - no problem. Look at the website and google earth and check it out - let me know
