The Drone Club meets the fourth Monday evening of each month from 7 to 8 p.m., in Room 104 at the Creative Arts Technology Center. We have no dues, and attendance is open for any Robson resident who is interested in anything that is drone related, regardless of what they own or understand, but have a desire to learn more about. As an enhancement to our Drone Club members, we are now offering a presenter video recording that can be accessed through membership in Groups.io (formerly known as Yahoo Groups) at rrtxtech.groups.io/g/main and at our new website robsontech.club/drone-club-november-meeting.

Our Feb. 27 meeting was hosted by Steve Simpson who presented on “Drone Flying for the Recreational Pilot.” This meeting was to inform attendees of drones that I am currently using and FAA rules and regulations on how to fly safely at Robson Ranch.

We had Robson attendees who asked many questions about current drones and where and how to fly safely. I provided images from my personal website groundandaerialmedia.co/robson-ranch for all to see with regards to my purpose for flying the drone, as well as links to the FAA website faa.gov/uas/recreational_flyers that expands responsibility of the recreational pilot.
