 Come build a Quadcopter. Yes, we need you. We will begin building a H-frame Quadcopter, loosely following the free plans made available from Flite Test. There's no cost, just come and have fun, this is open to members and non-members.

Monthly get-togethers will keep the project rolling and allow everyone to learn by doing. We will build the frame, paint it, install the electronics, unravel the mystery of programming the flight controller and eventually learn how to fly the craft.

Can't wait to fly? Try your hand with one of the two great handling mini-quads that will be at the Nov 22 meeting.

If you're multirotor project has stalled, bring it on down. We have all the tools you could possibly need and a bunch of hands to get you going again!

In addition. several members will be working on their personal aircrafts. Rich will be building his HobbyKing Talon V2 quad. Pete will be working on his DJI F450 quad. Lee will be showing of his FPV setup. Steve will have his completed DJI F550 hexcopter that includes some crazy LED lights, GPS, telemetry and waypoint flying.

Here's an H-frame Quadcopter similar to the one we will start building:
