DIY Drones

B-25 model in a wind tunnel
October 1942. Experimental staff at the North American Aviation plant in Ingle- wood, Calif., observing wind tunnel tests on a model of the B-25 ("Billy Mitchell") bomber. Via shorpy.

I believe Chris Anderson's new DIY Drones is the first site whose entire focus is amateur UAVs.

There are several RC plane and helicopter sites with UAV discussion areas, but they tend to be low-traffic and low-tech. They sometimes have interesting, worthwhile posts, but those old-style web-based RSS-less discussion boards are not charming and are basically unusable as far as I'm concerned. 1996 called—it wants its attention model back (I'm looking directly into your eyes, DARPA).
