St. Louis University's Senior Research Assistant for the Center for Aviation Safety Research, Richard Steckel, cover topics including "the current state of the industry, the booming market for UAV pilot careers in the private sector, and how the FAA is reacting to this new tech.
Last night Arch Reactor hosted a 3D Printer Build Night as part of the St. Louis 3D Printer Meetup Group with at least 35 attendees. The printer for the evening was a donated PrintrBot kit from one of Arch Reactor's members. Since the total assembly time would end up being 12+ hours, Ryan and Scott pre-assembled some of the more minor assemblies to help speed up the process and get to the more interesting parts. In addition to the kit building, there were several other printers running which varied from an UltiMaker, a couple different delta printers, and modified Lyman filament extruder.

We'll get these in some members hand tonight and see what we they come up with!Read more...
