What we're about

I formed the NJ Drone User Group ( http://NjDug.org ) in 2o14 and hold Flying, Building, Training and Social events throughout NJ and adjacent States - I'm also putting on an annual Drone Expo (http:// http://DroneExpoEast.com ) in March 2020 and a new racing league: International Drone Racing Limited (http://IDRLC.com)(http://IDRLc.com)..

The NJ Drone User Group is all about getting together to teach and learn about the technology behind building and flying a UAV* (or sUAS*) drone as well as how to use it safely and sensibly for fun and commercial use.

We fly most weekends, weather and TFRs permitting (Temporary Flight Restriction, such as when POTUS is in the area) at various locations.

Whether you are an expert or have only just begun, come join the fun with our GREAT members.


* UAV = Unmanned Aerial Vehicle and sUAS = small Unmanned Aircraft System (less than 55lbs - under 87knots/100mph)

Upcoming events (5+)

UAV Drone Workshop

Location visible to members

Bring your UAV / sUAS Drones to our regular bi-monthly Hoboken Build and Configure.... If you don't have a drone yet, this is NOT for you as it's only a Workshop for members to work on their drones. A better idea is to come to our Fly-In events where you'll meet a lot of helpful pilots that can give you good suggestions on what to do next. Pilots are welcome from either NJ or NY (we're near the PATH train station) and there will be help and plenty of tools for you to build and configure your bird(s).. If you RSVP to come and find you can't make it, you MUST change your RSVP as soon as you know as space is limited... Thanks...

Fly-In at Ellisdale Farm

Fly-In 'at the Academy'

Our friends at the NJ Drone Academy have welcomed The NJ Drone User Group to fly at their facility. Easy access and only 4 miles from Flemington, 20 miles from Trenton, and 11 miles from Pennsylvania - plenty of parking. Bring your friends and family - fly in their large soon to be netted area, plus check out their training and repair facilities. If you need a ride, eMail Nickalf and if you're delayed or coming late, call the number above so I know to wait for you and if less than 4 members sign up, the meeting will be cancelled.
