December 6, 2016 Susquehanna Section Dinner/Presentation: Drones



Drones 101


Topic: Drones 101



Small drones, which consist mostly of quad and hexacopters, are controversial and incredibly useful.  They have developed rapidly, in the last 5 years, in terms of capability and safety.  We will review their technology, capabilities, safety features, changing regulatory environment and their role in community service.  A typical consumer drone will be used to demonstrate some features as time, space and weather permit.
