What we're about
The Milwaukee Drone Users Group (or MKE DUG) is a group for responsible, legal, and ethical model aircraft enthusiasts, current and potential commercial and non-recreational SUAS operators, and cool people in general. It is also a chance for us to stand around with cool sunglasses, big watches, and talk while we swoosh our hands through the air. All conversations must begin with "so there I was..."
If members are aircraft modelers, we greatly encourage them to join the Academy of Model Aeronautics ( http://www.modelaircraft.org/) and operate in accordance with their operating standards ( https://www.modelaircraft.org/files/105.pdf). Any recreational flying activities related to this group will be conducted by these standards so that we don't put the sport at risk.
Commercial/non-recreational UAS users are also greatly encouraged to operate in accordance with the FAA's rules and regulations which are still being developed at this time, but more information can be found here: https://www.faa.gov/uas/
For details about the group or additional information about anything discussed above, feel free to reach out to me. I'm more than willing to help in any way I can.
