I have a friend that founded the North Texas Drone Users Group and also helped found the National Drone Users Group Network. He let me know about a contest they are holding called the Drone Social Impact Award
. It's pretty cool! The idea is to promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.
I think this is a great award to help raise awareness for drones as a positive tool instead of invasions of privacy as many fear. I'd love to see our community of ELEV-8 pilots get involved. It would be great to hear what positive change they can make with the ELEV-8.
If you know people you think might be interested, please feel free to share this contest with them.
Oh, and did I mention the prize purse is $5,000?!?
