Amelia Dronehart is a worldwide community of women RC Pilots.
The Dronehart group is made up of women who fly single-rotor helicopters, fixed wing and multi-rotor aircraft, while some women prefer Ready To Fly (RTF) copters others prefer Do It Yourself (DIY) builds but we all share the same passion of flight. The foundation of the group is to support each other and and use this platform as a way to connect with the world wide community of female RC pilots. By coming together in a single group we are able to have a larger impact on the RC community and inspiring other females of all ages and backgrounds to enter the amazing world remote controlled flight.
Our core bond is the love of flight and the technology but our backgrounds and why we fly are very diverse; some fly just to fly, some are geek gadget lovers, others are photographers or film makers, some are educators using the technology with STEM education and the list goes on[.]
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Adafruit publishes a wide range of writing and video content, including interviews and reporting on the maker market and the wider technology world. Our standards page is intended as a guide to best practices that Adafruit uses, as well as an outline of the ethical standards Adafruit aspires to. While Adafruit is not an independent journalistic institution, Adafruit strives to be a fair, informative, and positive voice within the community – check it out here: adafruit.com/editorialstandards
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
