We are Make Hack Void, a Hackerspace* in Canberra, Australia.
Our space (Map) is a community workshop in Downer where members can come to work on their projects, get access to tools and expertise, and meet like-minded people. We have membership options including associate & student membership rates, and casual membership rates.
We also hold Maker Meetups on the 1st, 3rd & 5th Tuesdays of each month where anyone at all can chat, show and tell, get help or advice, and talk about their projects. You don't have to be a member to come to a Meetup.
Our group includes people with extremely diverse interests. Fibreglass moulds to FPGA electronics, Arduinos to DIY pizza ovens. Plus lots more. We're all interested in making things, hacking on projects, and we're not afraid of voiding warranties if we have to.

Bought a small, cheap RC heli a while ago. Didn't play with it much, decided it was time to see what was in it! Unfortunately I neglected to take a bunch of photos of the internals - I might do so later and will fix this article up if I do.
I got the heli from Hobbyking - it was only $10, an impulse buy on top of an existing order: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/uh_viewItem.asp?idProduct=11309

I put up some webcams around the space attached to an old laptop. I used them to record a timelapse video today!
As you can (hopefully) tell from the video, one camera is looking at the welding area, and the other is looking down onto the electronics bench (taped to the magnifier). I'll be adding more cameras and rearranging everything when I can.
