The Buckeye Aerial Drone User Group (BADUG) based in Columbus OH is an organization for amateur and professional drone & aerial photography users that seeks to promote the responsible use of flying fixed wing and multi rotor 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 and aerial photography are a lot of fun!
