Summer Update

The spring semester has officially come to a close, and that means our spring flying schedule is now finished.  Unfortunately, we do not have any scheduled fly days during the summer, but will return to flying next fall semester.  You may still reach us through our contact page which will be monitored at least once a week, during the summer.  Have a great summer!

Spring 2018 Fly Days!

This is the official schedule for our spring semester fly days.  A majority of the flights will be indoor due to the weather.  We will be flying almost every Sunday during the semester.  If you would like to fly indoors with us you need to bring your drone to one of the fly days so that we can make sure it is safe for indoor use.  We generally only want you to be flying micro-scale drones that won’t cause damage to people or property.  As always, anyone is welcome to stop by to watch or possibly try their hand at flying a member’s drone!

Lost and Found Drone!

Have you been flying in Tuttle Park recently and lost your drone?  We were contacted by someone who may have found it!  It was described as being bigger than a 250, but smaller than a 450.  Contact us at our email if you believe it is yours.  We will ask you for and accurate description, picture, or other identifying information before we hand it off.

Fly Days/Meetings (Autumn 2016)

Want to come see what we do?  Come out to one of our fly days!  These days are usually Tuesdays at 5:30PM in Tuttle Park (just north of campus behind the Panera on Lane Ave.).  Please check our Facebook and Twitter to check and see if we will be out that Tuesday.  We usually try to let people know a day or more in advance.  Hope to see you out there!
