Next Meetup

Let’s meet up to explore the skies and fly for fun! All levels welcome.
Looking for some Saturday fun in the bay area? Come join us for a flying event. We are a friendly group of drone pilots at all skill levels that love taking to the sky and flying together. I'll bring the waters, maybe you can bring a snack to share? We usually fly in the grassy area toward the far right side of the field. Looking forward to meeting you and helping if we can. As a group we have lots of experience and can help you set up your drone or answer any questions. Location/Parking: Below is the map of the Baylands Park, look for us with the Flying Drones For Fun Banner. You may park in the red area marked on the map or any open parking close to us. Note: Drone insurance is important for your personal liability. Please join AMA or use app Verifly Drone to self insure. SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: This Meetup will include a memorial flight for Richard Tanner, one of the founders of our MeetUp group. There will be a short ceremony at noon, followed by a final tribute flight out to the bay. Those interested in being a part of the flight honor guard, please contact me directly at [masked]. This will be in the tradition of a Surf Wake, but for drones. I hope to get as many drones in the air at that moment as is possible. Anyone interested in filming the event, again please contact me.

What we're about

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.

OUR GOALS:

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!
