Special Drone Practice Flights/Demonstration Scheduled for Friday, March 23, 2017

Fort Bend County will be hosting drone flight practice Friday, March 23. This is a group of 107 and Public COA drone operators within Fort Bend County which come together to share insight and support each other in disasters and meets regularly to practice drone flights in a safe environment in a judgement free zone. We will meet at the Fort Bend County Office of Emergency Management from 10-11.

This week, Justin Adams from the Center for Robot Assisted Search and Rescue (CRASAR) will be demonstrating the M210, a larger DJI platform which supports FLIR, top-mount gimbals, and much more flexibility.

Please plan on joining us if you’re free, and bring your sUAS with charged batteries. We’ll bring cones and other supplies. We will be meeting at the Office of Emergency Management: openhttps://www.openstreetmap.org/directions?to=307%20fort%20street
