About PDXDrones: Do you like drones (aka UAVs)? Do you fly, build, drive or program something that could be considered a drone? Then join this group of enthusiasts and let’s get together and share experiences, success stories, crashes and hacking projects we’re all working on!

We have a broad definition of a drone – its basically a device that is either remotely controlled or completely autonomous. It can fly, drive or swim. It can carry things or take pictures and videos. You can control it by line of site, via video link or by programming in its route ahead of time. If you want a full definition, there’s always Wikipedia.
