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 International Drone Racing League (http://IDRLC.com) starting over the beach of Atlantic City in June 2019..

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+)

Fly-In the 'Cream Ridge Field'

Location visible to members

Large horse farm fields (almost a mile square and currently with no horses) outside the POTUS golf course TFR area..... Check my weather map (http://alturl.com/zrpdj).... This is great for opening up at full speed or for getting some nice video of surrounding area... Good place to fly wings (electric only) and setup some practice FPV gates... Enter at the coordinates and drive north around the outside of the field to the Parking area where you'll find the sign-in table....

Fly-In 'at the Academy'

Location visible to members

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.

Fly-In at Old York Farm

Location visible to members

A paddock field on a horse farm outside the NODAM VIP TFR area.... Large enough to setup an FPV race course and plenty of interesting surrounding area views to shoot... Check my detailed weather map and link (http://alturl.com/3fkf5) and check here for any updates before you head out....
