I'm living in the Montreal area and I'm very instered about a user group ou techy group !
I havent started to work on a diy drones, it's on project but I need experience and people to share ideas with.
It can be good to keep this post updated about user group and projects in the Montreal region.
Thanks for bumping this thread; Presently, I only know about 5-10 people who would be interested in this topic,
I have a potential indoor meeting place at the foulab (in St-Henry, Mtl.). The foulab seems to be one of the only techy spaces in MTL. I personally find the lab a great place of diversity and talent (but take note of Jonathan's comments above).
If anyone wants to have access to some test equipment etc, the foulab holds an open house on tuesday nights, after 7:30 (ish) BUT contact me first so I can help organize your visit.
If you have any specific questions feel free to contact me via the list, or post it to this thread: the more Montreal'ers we can get the better.
( demographic statistics ) What area are you in?
I only know of two techy groups in Montreal. http://www.foulab.org lots of scopes, saws, power tools, geeks etc …and I have just heard about http://thefactory.mcgilleus.ca I dont know if they have any of their own equipment.
BTW: The foulab is predominantly bilingual, and looks like most of us on this thread are too. Donc, if you are as uncomfortable writing in English as I am French :)
SVP soyer libre de répondre en français aussi!
i am also a newbi here and to UAV (although, i did lots of reading) . I have quite a few birds that i am ready to transform to UAVs and i would be interested to participate, exchange, and possibly meet once in a while with some local guys. I see that there seems to be a few members from the south shore of Montreal. Probably due to the fact that we have a few flying clubs around because or the open fields and country (like) environnement. I am lucky enough to be able to fly my gliders and helis at the end of my street because it's all open fields (agricultural), very few trees and i have permission from the owners. I'd love to able to meet with some of you guys to share knowledge, exchange ideas and perhaps do some fun fly.
Keep me posted, ill be following this thread...
PS: I'm french, so, feel free to reply in french if you prefer..
Update this post if you have idea or projet concerning drone aroung the Montreal area, I will be pleased to participate.
I'm french too, so english or french will be ok.
Hi i'm from Québec (Québec) and start a new project, built my drone for arieal photography .
there is a new Quebec fpv forum entirely in french... for those interested!
I am in Montreal too and interested in multicopters, classic heli, FPV and aerial pictures. Speak French also.
Quick question for Montrealers people:
My QuadX with APM2.0 looks is not more able to fly, but not sure why this. I am not a beginner, no crash, but also can not become airborne again. The actual QuadX did have more than 50 flights before.
Wondering if I can find someone with a multicopter to test my APM2.0. Simple to install my APM2.0 in your model and see if is able to fly. I am in west island.
Hey Mat, I am in Ville Marie, and have all the parts to start building , my UAV Y copter. I would love to talk to you and see your UAV. I am very new at this and could use some guidance, also where is the foulab?
