Radio Mondays: RC hobby gear

My outline notes of the meeting

We had another great Radio Mondays(about 10 attending), we discussed the wide variety of RC toys and models and organizations; paying special attention to areas people might be interested in trying out something.

The toy helicopter above was very popular to fly around, although it’s a bit tricky to control. Organizations like Big Gun scale ship combat and 3D-flying helicopter races were explored in detail, and we discussed some alternate uses of RC gear, like controlling art installations, decorations, using hobby flight gear as a cheap intro to UAV design, and much more.

    Yeah they are tricky to fly, but if you trim it ok a kid could fly it. And after they outgrow it, it could be used to control something else.
