Vic Susman Drone

Come Fly With LIMac!

Have you ever wondered what the world looks like from a bird’s-eye view? Come on down to the LiMac meeting on Friday, July 13, 2018 to find out when long time LIMac member and board of directors member Victor Susman, and recently Certified FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot, will fly his Phantom 4 UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or drone on the Quad at NYIT. Join Vic at 7:00 outside Harry Shure Hall for a live bird’s-eye view of NYIT.

After the flight, join Vic at the meeting for a presentation about drones and the impact drones have had on our lives in the short time they have been in use.

If you have seen a movie or watched television shows recently, you have probably seen video shot by a drone. If you have eaten an apple, almond or cherry, drones may have pollinated the trees! If you visited Disney World during the holidays between November, 2016 and January, 2017, you may have seen a drone show instead of the usual fireworks display. If you watched the opening of the Winter Olympics in Korea, you may have seen the drone show engineered by Intel. Lady Gaga even incorporated drones in her show at the 2017 Super Bowl Halftime show.

It seems like the sky’s the limit does not apply for the future of drone technology. Is there a drone in your future? Drone technology is constantly evolving; so future drone tech is currently undergoing groundbreaking progressive improvement. The technological potential with drones is immense, and its uses will only grow with time.

When we meet back inside Harry Schure Hall, before Vic’s presentation, we’ll hold our crowd-sourced Q&A session. Then, after the presentation there will be announcements and the raffle.

Come on down to the LiMac meeting on July 13, 2018 for an exciting and interesting presentation.

Your first meeting is FREE. Annual individual membership is $48.00, which covers all immediate members of your family & gives you access to our monthly electronic newsletter and member-only bulletin board and valuable discounts only available to Macintosh User Group members.

You’re Invited to the MacBasics SIG
In order to meet the needs of a wider range of members and not put off those with more than beginning skills, we’ve changed not only the name from Beginner SIG, but also the focus of our SIG. We will still cover applications like AppleWorks and simple procedures like setting up your first Mac, file systems and using utilities, but we’ve also matured, as much of Apple’s software and hardware has. So come on down. We'll be where we’ve always been, doing what we’ve always done, but with a new slant and a new name. The MacBasics SIG is led by Geoff Broadhurst and Rick Matteson. The SIG meeting is broken into two sessions. The first is from 7:00 to 7:30PM, during which we will have our own basic level question and answer session. We’ll break for the featured presentation and raffle and come back for the main portion of our SIG meeting from 8:30 to 10 o’clock. Of course before our MacBasics main demonstration we'll have our own novice Q&A session across the hall, while Bradley's dealing with the more complicated problems in the main room.

As always come with questions. The MacBasics SIG is not just for beginners, but we do discuss aspects of the Mac that may sometimes be overlooked. There will be a MacBasics SIG meeting this month. The topic has not been announced.


The App SIG, is the latest SIG from LIMac. It's a peer-to-peer group where members share their knowledge and experience with the
operating system iOS 7 and their favorite apps for their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch.

While the AppleTV does run iOS, it doesn't run
user apps. Nevertheless, it can play an important role in the mobile OS realm with streaming video and photos and screen mirroring.
Lets help each other here. There will be no App SIG meeting this month.
