Meet the Makers: Tampa Drones

600_447048213One of our new exhibitors this year is Tampa Drones .  Joshua Newby, who heads up the group, told us a little more about it, and what they’re bringing to Gulf Coast MakerCon 2016.


Tampa Drones is a Meetup group in the Tampa Bay area that meet every month for collaboration, training and fun flying. Our group of knowledgeable enthusiasts enjoy being able to meet with other like minded individuals to talk tech, help each other with their current projects and tech one another with lessons learned. Ranging from racing 600_447142173drones to heavy lift applications, we are Tampa’s cutting edge drone enthusiast group and we welcome all!

At our booth, we will have on display the various kinds of drones that our members have built. We will also be hosting an FPV Experience, where anyone can don a pair of FPV goggles and experience the excitement of fpv flight through a drone racing course. We will also have a FPV flight simulator for anyone who wishes to take a stab at piloting a racing drone.

We are really excited to be a part of this event and spread the word about Tampa Drones!


And we’re really excited Tampa Drones is joining us! Get your tickets today so you can have a chance to try out their simulator and the FPV Experience!
