Murphy Company is now the regional chapter head for the UAVSA, servicing Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
Today, August 27th, we will be having our inaugural Regional Chapter Meetup starting at 5PM.
5:00 - 7:00 pm: Build & Fly Time.
Build - in our meeting room we have designated a build area. It is nothing extravagant, but it is a start while we work on things here. Educate others, learn from each other and share information.
Fly - We have a fairly large back lawn area, but limited when it comes to flying use. We will open up this controlled area with house rules for limited flying. It is a good chance to share with newcomers and test out your UAV/drone with new friends. We will have impose house rules as safety takes priority. We are working on local meetup areas for organized flying and events in the near future.
7:00 pm: Chapter Meeting.
As we are launching this meetup about a month ahead of schedule we are not as ready as we would like to be. We have extended 5-10 minutes to a few individuals to share about their organization or services they offer. If you are interested in speaking please let us know.
State of the Drone/Industry - Loren Stone, CEO of Murphy Company and UASA Chapter President, is attending the Ohio UAS Conference in Dayton, August 24 and 25. He will share information and insight from that two-day conference.
Looking forward to providing the exchange of ideas around the growing UAS/drone community in our Region in a diverse, open, and friendly environment.
Quadcopter, Hexacopter, Octocopter, Multirotor and UAV prosumer, startup, manufacturer, retailer, developer, service provider, cinematographer - connecting with like-minded UAS professionals.
Some of us will grab a drink at one of our favorite water holes around the corner from us on Rich. Land Grant, Rehab or Strongwater or all three. As this is after the meeting we hope to have a few of you join us.
See you then!
