Today we hit another milestone, with 8,000 members. Over the past year traffic on DIY Drones has grown more than 4x, from an average of 5,000 page views per day a year ago, to 22,000 today. We currently average 6,000 unique visitors per day. We are adding 1,000 members every 54 days (less than two months), or an average of 19 a day, a pace that is speeding up. Here are the comparable stats from Jan 5th, when we passed 7,000.
