This group is for anyone who is interested in experiencing flying drones and meeting drone enthusiasts. No matter what level of skills you have, we welcome anyone from beginners to hobbyists to join us for a fun drone flying experience. You are welcome to bring you own drone and fly with us.
1) To Nurture and assist new and experienced drone pilots to fly safely and learn new skills.
2) To enjoy flight time and conversation with other drone pilots.
3) To act as a resource for the drone community at large, both amateur and professional
Drone flight insurance is required for any drone flight. We recommend joining the AMA (American modelers association) to take advantage of their member coverage, or using the app VERIFLY DRONE for more extensive protection. These are liability insurers and do not cover drone damage.
We are a friendly group and like to call each other by name, so please be sure when joining that your meetup profile shows a clear picture of just your face. We use this to create our ID badges worn at our events.
Your group leader teaches drone flight and can be a great help to those starting out, or wanting to get a taste of what it is like to take to the skies... ROTORS UP!
So this will be a chance to experience that late day "golden hour" light as we go to Baylands park for a sunset session. Park is open until 1/2 hour after sunset.
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU ARE A SKILLED LOW LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER, PLEASE LET ME KNOW AND I WILL ASK YOU TO HELP HOST THIS EVENT. PERHAPS GIVE A FEW MINUTES TALK ABOUT LOW LIGHT DRONE PHOTOGRAPHY, AND WE CAN MAKE A HANDOUT. THANKS!
