Hi All,

I'm Philip.  I dived into building and flying quadcopters since August.  My initial goal was to do aerial photography and really impressed with the capabilities.  I built a quad based on the KK2.0 FC and used the GoPro for video with many versions of landing gear (out of necessity) and scratch built servo-driven gimbals.  I have recently switched to 3DR's APM FC with GPS/Compass and telemetry - wow what a difference!

Anyway, I'm very much looking forward to sharing stories, ideas and learning more

Hello! I'm Chad. I missed the first meeting unfortunately and was hoping to be a part of other meetings. I've since moved out to Breck but would still like to be involved. I have not yet flown a quad copter but I am hoping to add one to my video gear. 

My background is in aerial photography. I used to work with WGN's Skycam9 in Chicago operating FLIR and Cineflex camera systems. I hope to either team up with a drone pilot or learn more about the smaller quads.

Thanks for stepping up, Shawn. I've been interested in this space for a while, but don't own any gear yet. Big reason I haven't is given the regulations, I don't feel like I have any legal way of re-couping my investment by offering services. Given this, things I'd like to learn about:

-What is the current state of drone regulations?
-What non law enforcement/surveillance based applications are gaining traction these days?
-Are there rental options available (now there's a possible business idea...)

Host a meetup on any of these topics, and I will try to be there.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the group.

David

Hi All,
My name is Shawn and I've stepped in as organizer to gauge the interest of keeping this MeetUp group going. Firstly, thanks to TJ for founding this group.  Since TJ stepped down and MeetUp was going to disband, I thought it a shame to let the group dissolve, thus this email.
A bit about me: I live in Denver quit my day job and threw myself into this full time about a year ago.  I spent the last 15 years building Internet startups and  I firmly believe RC heli/UAS/drone/multirotors/whatever is one of the biggest tech advancements and business opportunities to come down the track in some time.  I'm also into the adventure film world and hope some day soon to film expeditions.
Anyhow, whether you're a casual observer, hobbiest, photo/videographer,  noob or pro, I'd like to hear from you and if you're interested to fire up this network.
Along with an eventual meet up/fly in, I'd like to meet other CO pilots and talk about: tri/quad/hex/octo/X-rig platforms, cameras, gimbals, flight controllers, radios, recent FAA announcements and regs, CO govt and drone lobby, tech advice and repair options, best retailers, FPV, and general networking.
So, chime in and tell us who you are, what you're looking for and if you'd like to have a meetup in the next month or so.  I've left the "reply" settings to copy all 53 members so we can share thoughts and get the ball rolling!
Thanks and fly safely!
Shawn
