Ever wonder if anyone was going to let you cut loose with your drone? Been looking for local drone types but just can't seem to find them? The North Texas Drone Users Group (NTDUG) is a support and networking organization in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Our goal is to provide a community for locals building and flying their own drones – we welcome everyone from novice to expert and from regular RC to advanced drone designs. We host regularly scheduled fly-ins at a variety of locations throughout the DFW metroplex that has included AMA RC airfields as well as private patches of land in the middle of nowhere! We hold classes on basic RC components and construction as well as putting together more advanced classes such as drone safety and drone construction.
If you are looking for a group of people to hang out with and perhaps help with outreaches to high schools, helping to put on demonstrations or just witness a good and expensive crash or two then come on out!
NTDUG is currently sponsored by 3DRobotics, Dallas Makers Space, and Unmanned Research Association thus providing the organization and its community with extensive resources and education ranging from the garage tinkerer to engineers to formerly deployed personnel. We are also part of a larger network of Drone User Groups which are based in other states.
NTDUG is still new yet we are already establishing a platform for the future formation of teams to compete in upcoming competitions and larger community based projects such as Search and Rescue Operations. We greatly welcome your presence at our next event coming up on July 13th, as well as hearing your input on how we can improve the image of drones in our ever changing society.
