Thank you for the invite to this group. I am still working on my first Quad Drone. I have built models and flown RC for years. I would like to share a link to John Searl and think many of you will find him fascinating. The video about him is amazing.http://www.searlsolution.com/index.html

Many thanks for the invitation to this group.  Of course any member who is in the UK is enthusiastically invited to our South of England 'Drone Zone' event which is happening on the 12th June.  This is an informal get together of drone enthusiasts and we are encouraging anyone who has a drone to bring it along.  The good news is that the event is FREE!  Hope to see you!  Details are on the UK UAV fliers forum...https://groups.google.com/group/uavukflyers

 

If you'd like to know more, please email martin@buildyourowndrone.co.uk

Cheers, Nigel

Hi all,

I have three quads of varying sizes and would really like to get them flying. However the weather here in North TX has not been very cooperative. The wind has been blowing from around 10 - 15 mph since the middle of last week. Gusts have reached 25 mph. Definitely not good flying weather and it is expected to continue for the rest of the week. However, I have learned quite a bit about what not to do concerning getting my quads in the air by learning from the experiences of members on this Forum.

Regards,

TCIII
