Next Meetup

Fly-In by The River
Join us for some Passaic Riverside flying and FPV practice races..... FPV pilot check in will be from 11:30 - 12 and frequencies will be assigned at that time..... As I only took over the NorthSide Pilots group a few months ago, as many of you know we currently only have 4 practice gates and 4 cubes. Please bring any course equipment you have so we can setup a race field. I'll get there by 10:30 to build what we can, so if you have (and can make it) come earlier to help... In between races, there will be plenty of time to fly video/photo or acro runs.....

What we're about

Public Group

We formed the NJ Drone User Group ( ) in 2o14 and hold Flying, Building, Training and Social events - plus run an annual Drone Expo ( and the NJ International Drone Day every May.

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, and if you need to build or work on the configuration of your 'babies', we meet occasionally at two Maker Spaces - who kindly let us use their facilities, tools, 3D printers, etc. free of charge. If you have emergency work that needs doing fast, eMail Nick and he'll set it up at whichever location is nearest to you..

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