The Top Online Drone Groups Worth Joining
The drone industry is a massive global community and it can be daunting trying to figure out how to connect. Whether you want to connect with other pilots, get the latest industry info or advance you career, there are TONS of groups available. But how do you choose the best one? Sally French, more commonly known as the “Drone Girl“, published an awesome article discussing some of the best online drone communities. Check out her personal suggestions below and then a few others that we recommend!
Some of the top communities that she suggests joining are:
- AirVuz: Videographers should join AirVuz, a community of people looking to watch or upload aerial videos. The community has a pretty strong drone-racing slant, for people interested in racing or freestyle drones.
- Amelia Droneharts: For a fantastic, female-only community of drone pilots around the world, Amelia Droneharts is the place to be. There’s a main webpage, but most of the chatter happens in their private Facebook group. For other awesome female communities, check out Girls Who Drone, a group for women in the San Francisco Bay Area
- SkyPixel: For photographers, SkyPixel is a community centered around aerial photography. Members can upvote each other’s photos, and experts are ranked based on votes. SkyPixel also holds an annual photo contest for its members, and the competition is pretty fierce. SkyPixel is run in partnership with DJI. Continue reading for her full recommendations list here.
- FPV Labs: A great group/ forum for all things related to first-person-view
- DroneGirl: She reporting on all things related to drones, and even sometimes with drones! She’s got a great cite and a cult following- check her out!
- RC Groups: The most active Radio Control model community (electric and fuel RC airplanes, helis, boats, and cars). A great option for those interested in the hobby side (as opposed to commercial).
