Drone Flyers in Austin: Fly With Us at SXSW This Weekend

Drone Flyers in Austin: Fly With Us at SXSW This Weekend


MAKE is excited to head to Texas this week for one of the best events of the year, and we’re hoping to get more of the homegrown drone community involved.

We’ll be set up at SXSW Create from Friday to Sunday (3/7 – 3/9), and are bringing drone professionals and enthusiasts from 3D Robotics to Rice University to display and demonstrate their latest flying machines. We’ll be handing out copies of our new “Homegrown Drones” issue, talking with thousands of visitors, and generally just having a blast.

We’ve saved table space for a couple additional enthusiasts to take part with us at what promises to be a very fun weekend, and would love to chat with local drone-flying groups that would like to help us take over the sky in front of the Long Center. If your team is around and want to get involved, email us: msenese@makermedia.com

And for those who may not be able to participate for the full three days, we’re doing an open-fly session every afternoon from 4pm to 6pm. The SXSW Create event is free, so if you’re interested, email or just come by. It’s going to be amazing.

When: 3/7 – 3/9

Time: 11am–6pm; open fly from 4pm-6pm

Where: Long Center, Austin
