Help us prepare for the newest wave of drone owners!

  • technical mentors for students & adults

There’s a clear benefit of working with us to promote STEM and drone safety.   It’s access to other local hobbyists & tech professionals!   We have yet to hold an event that hasn’t included a mini-meeting and sharing between everyone involved.  You give, you learn.  It’s pretty special.   More Info
