This is a meetup group for folks that are interested in the aerial perspective and connecting people to it. "Drone" is not a four-letter word... seriously, you can check it! Come join the geeks, entrepreneurs, and hobbyists that are making it possible to deploy this incredible technology for society's greater good. No previous drone geek experience required... just your interest in the technology!

PDXDrones is a member of the Drone User Group Network.

Our goals:

  1. Have fun! Let’s fly, take some beautiful pictures and videos, meet wonderful people and educate the public.
  2. To spread community understanding and acceptance of human controlled and autonomous drones.
  3. To demonstrate and promote the use of drones for constructive purposes.
  4. Turn Portland into a hub of activity for Drone development and monetization.
  5. Push the boundaries and capabilities of current Drone technology, pushing the science ahead.
