This is the News Team for! We are just getting things set up so please be patient with us during the first couple weeks.  We're looking for amateur journalists who are interested in writing Drone News Articles that will be published on the front page on a daily basis.  If you're currently in college for journalism it will be an awesome thing to be able to put on your resume!  Also if this team is successful enough we are lined up to get our articles put in a few newspaper outlets in the Tech Section!!!

If you're interested in joining The News Team please let me know!

(More goals will be added once the "Short Term Goals" are met)

Short Term Goals:

  • Find journalists interested in writing articles
  • Get The Team and Group all set up and functioning 
  • Post 1 Article from the Team each day in a blog
  • Set up the journalists on DIYDrones with a DIYDrones Journalist title across the bottom of your profile picture (Very Easy to Do like how mine says Assistant Administrator Under my Photo)

Intermediate Goals:

  • Create a FREE downloadable, printable, weekly newspaper featuring the groups articles to allow DIYDrones members to enjoy the Team's articles while on the Go!
  • Create a DIYDrones Android & Apple app for the News Team that will allow us to Link all of our news and articles onto a easy to use news app for our members and journalists

Long Term Goals:

  • Create a fully function DIYDrones News Team that consists of paid journalists based off of pay from newspaper company compensations

Great idea Josh. Now we will have a much wider base to find and publish UAV articles of interest to the DIY Drones commuity.

Thanks Tom!  I figured since everyone loves to post Drone News Articles from sites like sUAS News and major news outlets  we could start posting our own news articles showing the great uses of UAVs, etc.

I think its a nice idea and would be happy help where possible!  My only comment is to be careful not to drown out all of the other interesting user content such as build guides/ tutorials with too many news articles each day.. as there are other sites around for news like, or more general videos like
