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:

Brookhaven College Drone Mapping and Photogrammetry Workshop

Brookhaven Community College

Brookhaven College is offering a 3-day continuing education workshop to help you learn about 2D and 3D data mapping from drone imagery. If you are looking for a career move that will include UAS you might want to check out GIS and Geospatial Technology. This might be the workshop for you. Topics will include GIS and geospatial subjects such as: Overview of GIS Applications for Drones, Brief discussion of drone options; Introduction to Safety and Licensing, Aerial Surveying, Flight Planning, Flight Mission, Trial software setup for both AGOL (ArcGIS Online) and D2M (Drone 2 Map), and Processing Imagery into Information Products (meshes, point clouds, orthoimagery). This is not a drone flying course although there will be actual drone flying to a limited extent. Our primary emphasis is that you understand the process of setting ground control points, capturing imagery and processing that imagery. (This is NOT the same course as the FAA Remote Pilot Cert. workshop.) You can register either online, you can call in or can register in person at any of our Dallas County Community College District campuses.

We provide online study material and practice tests which students can access even after the class is over. Hands on drone flying will be provided at the end of the course.
