CTH is looking to possibly put a Carpool Together to Engadget Expand Expo in New York City. Expand is designed from the ground up for technology fans. The consumer event gives tech enthusiasts the unique opportunity to hear from favorite technology and science luminaries on stage, talk directly with Engadget editors, and get their hands on some of the latest and greatest new devices at the show floor exhibition. Expand NY is held annually in the North Hall of Javits Center, Manhattan’s premier venue for large-scale events.

The Expand stage offers live panel and one-on-one sessions with some of consumer electronics’ greatest visionaries, putting attendees face to face with the people behind the most interesting and innovative devices on the market today. Panelists including CEOs, scientists, futurists, and roboticists from companies like Google, Microsoft, Toyota, NASA, OUYA, and 3D Robotics who took the Expand San Francisco stage in March 2013. And cutting-edge companies like Ekso Bionics and da Vinci stole the spotlight on the show floor with the truly awe-inspiring robot exoskeleton and surgical robot, respectively.

We will keep discussion and signup on our meetup page.

 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:
