The big story this week was the success of Mega Drone X in Kentucky. Last week’s “This Week in…” had a reminder, so don’t blame us if you missed it. But you can still read all about it at least.
This is a great video for a few reasons. They learned enough to call it a quad, they made it easy for viewers to get involved, and no annoying ads on the page. But wait, there’s more! Special web footage from Nelson Aquino of Gravity Goons.
The Rotoracers are a MultiGP chapter who’re having their next scheduled event on May 29, 2016. More information.
For the second annual IDD, 150+ events celebrating drones will take place tomorrow around the world, even around Washington, D.C.. Find a group near you to participate and get your thumbs ready to flood #IDD16 all day on social media.
Embrace the drone.
