Before JSConf, the Berlin.js team held the first  Nodecopter event, with 20 teams hacking on everything from controlling drones with Wii controllers, to programming their drones to see red and charge. Read  Mikeal Rogers's blog post for a full report.

MiniNodeCopter is a tiny event sanctioned by the NodeCopter team that will introduce the awesomeness that is NodeCopter to SF.

Organised by Christian Sanz of Geeklist with sponsorship from ** Windows Azure**, and the support of  Berlin.js and  Felix Geisendörfer.

Here are some photos from the most recent NodeCopter event in Dublin and here is a video of the final Drone WARS shortly after the demos.
