Next Meetup

COMING SOON ''WHAT BEES DO IN THE WINTER'' NEXT MEETUP NEEDS 15 RSVPs TO HOLD
WHAT BEES DO DURING THE WINTER? --------------------------------------------------------------------- Ever wondered what the male Bee(THE DRONE) or the Bee colony as a whole does during winter? This is one of the analogues we shall be brainstorming during our next meetup. I have spoken to a number of industry experts including one that is well versed on the regulatory side of things who has volunteered to take questions from members of our meetup group. If any member is interested in making a presentation during our next meetup, a time slot will be provided, but an advance notice is required. I nursed this other idea that, might be of interest to members. Suppose we suggest that, members come with at least one Drone or any Unmanned Vehicle System (Marine, and Terrestrial robotics inclusive), for some sort of mini exhibition during our next meetup, to help members appreciate the in-house trend in the hardware aspects of things? I do foresee a few winter flying events after our next meetup, and a number of interesting indoor activities to make it through the season. The call for co-organizers is still open. The event date is suggested, but can be adjusted if need be. At least, 15 pre-event RSVPs will mean a 'GO'' signal from members to fix a venue and schedule the meetup. We need a full house in order to invite our guest presenter. WE ARE THE U-PILOTS, MORE ACTIVE THAN BEES! -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Industry sneak peek: Human-carrying drone debuts at CES (http://money.cnn.com/2016/01/06/technology/ces-2016-ehang-drone/)

What we're about

WE LOOK BEYOND UAVs - COULD BE ANYTHING THAT MOVES ON LAND, ON AIR, OR ON THE SEA

========================================================================

We are just a group of technology enthusiasts interested in exploring the fun, and beneficial use of Unmanned Vehicles: 1. Drones, aka UAVs. 2. Land Remote Controlled Vehicles, & 3. Marine Remote Controlled Vehicles. We meet to discuss the future of RCVs with special interest on Drones applications to the benefit of mankind. We intend to make it fun, and laughter. We encourage members to acquire at least a Drone, a Terestial/Land or Marine Remote Controlled Vehicle, within the first week of registration in order to maximize the benefit of this Meetup. Aerial Videography has been revolutionized by Drones, the applications of Drones has since expanded into areas such as: 4.1 Remote sensing, 4.2 Commercial aerial surveillance, 4.3 Commercial and motion picture film making, 4.4 Sports, 4.5 Domestic policing, 4.6 Oil, gas and mineral exploration and production, 4.7 Disaster relief, 4.8 Scientific research, 4.9 Aerial target practice in training of human pilots, 4.10 Search and rescue, 4.11 Conservation, 4.12 Animal rights, 4.13 Maritime patrol, 4.14 Forest fire detection, & 4.15 Archaeology. The interest of this group is recreational, while we seek to update our understanding of the present and future trends in the industry.
