The FAA is now refunding Americans who registered their drones

Currently, if drone operators aren’t making money from flying their drone and are just flying for recreation, they don’t have to register with the Federal Aviation Administration If you’re flying your drone for money, registration is still a requirement. – April Glaser, Recode http://ift.tt/2tO9BAM

3D Printed Quadcopter with Arduino

Beginning in December 2013, I began working on a drone with several of my friends. We have created a drone that is 100% our own design. Using Autodesk Inventor we designed, drafted, and printed each part of our copter’s frame. We converted our files from .DWG to .X3G file, allowing us to print our frame on a MakerBot Industries 2x Replicator. All of the external wiring was done and reviewed by each person working on the copter. This was made three others. Their instructable accounts are BobBurghart, CoreyOrlovsky and Rnpauls. […] Our machine is flyable by either GPS or FM transmitter. – Nolan5454,Instructables
