The DC Area Drone User Group had a successful indoor flying event at the University of Maryland College Park. Nineteen people and eleven robots were in attendance. The group's organizer offered a case of beer to anyone who could get their drone to fly autonomously in a pattern indoors but unfortunately no one claimed the prize at this time. The offer still stands for anyone who comes to a DC DUG event and accomplishes this task. We are always looking for new members so if you are interested in learning more about the group check us out at .

Love it! The new optical flow boards coming soon will make that challenge winnable next year ;-)

You are absolutely right that we need to do a better job recruiting for gender diversity. Any suggestions or perspectives on what has worked for other groups in this regard?

I was just in DC on Saturday.  I've never been there before so I had to check out the Air & Space museum, but you guy's would have been a close second choice... Great place to visit, we want to go back... Next time I'll have more time and bring something that flies on its own...
