On August 14th the DC Radio Control Club (DCRC) hosted a visit to their spectacular flying site near Boyds, MD. by AMA President Bob Brown, Jamie Lessard from the FAA UAS Integration Office and representatives from Intelligent UAS, distributors of DJI UAS products. Members of the DCRC turned out to help provide a hands-on demonstration of radio controlled flight and an introduction to UAS technology.
With fantastic weather and the clubs’ generous hospitality, the evening and the demonstrations were a categorical success…
