What we're about

This is a group for both amateur and professional drone users committed to promoting the use of UAV's and drones for recreational, professional, search and rescue and educational purposes. We are a community of enthusiasts, business owners and professionals who come together to share tips, experiences, knowledge and to fly our aircraft. Our goal is to learn from each other and have some fun while we do it.

Please read our Standard Operating Procedures and Guidelines (http://www.meetup.com/North-Texas-Drone-User-Group/files/) document if you are new to operating drones, it could save your fingers!

Due to new FAA regulations, it is no longer necessary to register your drone for hobby use. If you still need to register a drone for commercial use, please use the following link:

Link: https://registermyuas.faa.gov/
Careful using other links as they may charge you extra or attempt to scam you.

Check out our Facebook discussion group and carry on the conversation: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1375139942519883/?ref=bookmarks

The North Texas Drone User Group (NTDUG) is a member of the Drone User Group Network (http://www.dugn.org/), an association of community groups that promotes the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.
