As is customary and traditional, we celebrate every new 1,000 members here and share the traffic stats. We're now at 18,000 registered members. We had another month of more than a million page views. It just took us six weeks to get this latest 1,000 members, which is the fastest growth we've ever seen--we're averaging about one new member per hour. We expected the usual summer slowdown as usual, but there was no sign of it this year. Drones are hot!


Thanks as always to all the community members who make this growth possible, and especially the moderators who approve membership applications and blog posts and otherwise answer questions and keep things ticking here. We've got about 40 moderators now, but if anyone would like to join this group, please PM me. If you've been here for a while and have been participating, you'll fit in great!

As is customary and traditional--congratulations!  It's almost becoming too easy to take the growth for granted.  In fact, with the DIY aspect of the autopilot moving toward plug-n-play (due to the hard work those you have profiled, and others I'm sure), I was actually wondering if interest in this site was dieing, or would die, off.  I guess not!  Well done.

We're a long way from plug-and-play ;-)


Real autonomous robotics is where the PC was in the late 70s. I think we've got a few decades of proper DIY still ahead of us...
