March 12: Flying High with ELT

Here’s a big shout out to the presenters at the March 12 from 10-11:30: Aaron Nestor, Jason Hazel, Chris Strasbaugh, and Forrest Schoessow! They all contributed great information.

Drones on campus.docx contains useful information about operating drones at Ohio State, including most of the topics discussed at the meeting. It is editable by anyone at Ohio State, so if you’re an excellent note taker (looking at you, Terry Bradley) or you have additional information, please add it.
Here’s the video from the event.
