Garage Pilots is a community site dedicated to amateur pilots of multirotor aircraft. "Multirotor aircraft" include builds of all shapes and sizes: drones, quadcopters, hexacopters, and any copter configuration you can think of.
Our goal is to make getting into this hobby dead simple and hopefully provide a network of like-minded individuals that you can share ideas with, bounce ideas off of, and most importantly, learn from.
We encourage you to sign up and share you build logs through blog posts, participate in the forums by posting and answering questions, or just browse our community at your leisure. We are all "Garage Pilots" at heart and hope you join us on this incredible journey.
***** UPDATE *****
Check out our new GitHub project for 3D printed designs. Our goal with this project is to design useful parts & mods for the multirotor community. We believe in designing quality parts that can be printed and sourced locally instead of ordering from China! If you're interested in contributing then sign up for a free GitHub account and follow the project.
If you have any requests for parts or design ideas then post them in our forums:
