ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – Drone enthusiasts flew into Abilene this weekend for the West Texas Drone Workshop at the downtown public library location.

About 70 people were in attendance at Saturday afternoon’s seminars, which shared insight into commercial drone flying.

Conference chairman Matthew Hinman says giving these flyers a chance to meet and educate themselves on the new tech will help spread an already growing field.
