What we're about

Public Group

The Northern New England Drone User Group (NNEDUG) is an organization for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of drones for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. All experience levels are welcome.

We get together as a community to share tips, experiences, and of course to do some flying. Learn how to build and use drones in a safe and respectful manner. We regularly hold events to educate the public about the positive role drones can play in our society. Most importantly, we think that drones are a lot of fun!

NNEDUG is a member of the Drone User Group Network (, an association of community organizations that promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.
