This is an interest group and recurring event for teaching, learning, and working on UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles).
Every thursday from 8 pm to 10 pm, beginning on May 29, 2014.
Somewhere in the noisebridge space. Details will be sorted out based on how many people show up and what tools we need.
Anyone who is interested in teaching, learning, and working on UAVs. Especially teaching, because I have no clue what I'm doing.
The event is organized by User:Alanpersak.
So we can conquer the world with a swarm of flying robots.
I will be working on building, programming, and flying a UAV of my own and I would like to invite anyone who is interested to join me.
My goal is to build a custom quadcopter from commercial parts costing less than $500 total. I will be optimizing for power efficiency and flight time.
The meetup will happen weekly on thursdays from 8-10 pm.
There will not be any sort of lesson or presentation, because I have no idea what I'm doing yet. It's just a time for some work and collaboration.
