On Wednesday, October 14th 2020, the Delaware Valley Radio Association monthly meeting HELD VIA VIRTUAL WEB CONFERENCE will feature a presentation titled “The World of Camera Drones” by Mike Rauch, K2VPX
Did you know that there are more drone pilots in the United States than amateur radio operators? What is a drone? What is a camera drone? What can you do with a camera drone? Is the FAA worse than the FCC?
Mike will discuss these, as well as, other topics in the fascinating area of UASs (Unmanned Aircraft System). After defining what a drone is, Mike will speak more specifically about the features of consumer camera drones and the most popular types being flown today.
Today’s drones are a technical marvel, and offer an interesting study for the technically inquisitive. They are also fun to fly. You do not want to miss this fascinating presentation.
Open to the public. Feel free to join for all or part of the meeting.

- Featured presentation at 7:30 PM
