Sunday evening Arch Reactor held a presentation for the Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Systems (UAS), and Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA). 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.
Come check out the space at one of our regular Tuesday meetings, year-round. Tuesday meetings are always open to the public, and generally begin at 7:30 pm.
Arch Reactor was founded in 2009 by a group of friends who liked technology, programming, making, and pizza. Now St. Louis' largest hackerspace, Arch Reactor's growing membership continues to bring new skills, projects, equipment, and people to one place.
For a deeper understanding of what we're about, you should check out our explanation of hackerspaces, perhaps read about one of our members' projects, or (best of all) come meet us in person at the next open event!
