This event will be joint event with Drone User Group. Chance will be short presentation about 10 min, so please come on time.
After the short presentation, The Drone Lab - AutoPilot Experiences. Please check below for more details
Scott Fuller will share his experience going back to an incident at Tecolote Canyon and the lessons learned over a year of using the APM. He has video from the flyaway incident that happened. It will be an open forum with a couple of important items for discussion including: Check lists, Aircraft Maintenance, Knowing your limitations, Flight planning and telemetry data, LRS and going past 1km
This is our monthly "Show and tell" meeting at the "Multicopter/Drone Lab."
The lab will be open every 1st Tuesday of every month and for other TBD events.
Bring any project in any stage or condition that you'd like to work on and/or share. We'll do a show and tell and show some footage.
Below is information about Chance's company
The world's first multicopter that's powerful enough to carry a high quality action camera and folds up smaller than a 7in tablet.
The Pocket Drone is the personal flying robot that enables anyone to capture amazing video and photos from the sky. The year 2014 is going to be the “Year of the Drone.” Personal and professional photography is literally beginning to take off. Everybody can already take great looking photos and videos with their camera phones and share them online, but they have been limited to what could seen from the ground. Now with the Pocket Drone, it's never been easier to capture spectacular aerial images that open up a whole new perspective and insight that had previously been unseen.
We aim to change the status quo through our little project with a BIG impact. We love flying robots, and we’re building them to share with the world
Until now, most people could not participate in this awesome new technology revolution - the cost was too great, the drones too bulky, and the software too difficult to operate. And to top it off, it always seemed like either mom or dad (the photographer) was missing from family pictures. We’re proud to announce the launch of The Pocket Drone to address these challenges. Many of our supporters are calling it the "GoPro of drones."
The Pocket Drone key features
1. Unique cutting-edge collapsible compact design
2. Easy to fly and simple to maintain
3. Lightweight with maximum payload
4. Ready to fly (RTF) with everything you need out of the box and quick to deploy
5. Advanced software and systems with autopilot and "follow me" mode
6. Longest flight time of any multicopter under $500
7. High quality materials and components
