The quadcopter you'll be building is no toy. It has built in gyroscopic stabilisation and is almost half a meter from propeller to propeller so can lift a very heavy payload - you could easily attach a GoPro or other similar HD camera. There are also many upgrade options possible using this flexible platform from adding GPS 'return-to-home' functionality to a FPV system ('First-Person-View' camera transmission).
During this exciting course you'll learn about aerodynamics, flight stabilisation, the physics of quadcopters and much more. You'll have plenty of time on a quadcopter simulator to hone your skills and then you'll move on to a real quadcopter. Everything is taken home at the end to let you continue your flying by yourself.
|Suitable for||All campers aged 13+ irrespective of experience - not recommended for campers who did the 'Aerospace' course in 2015 unless they wish to build another quadcopter and gain more flying tuition and experience|
|What you'll do||Build a quadcopter, practise using a computer simulator and learn how to fly it safely|
|What you'll learn||The aerodynamics of how quadcopters work / How to choose suitable RC components for a quadcopter based on specifications / How to build a quadcopter from component parts including connecting and soldering the necessary components / How to fly a quadcopter / Safety considerations and current legislation concerning quadcopters|
|What you'll take home||All components necessary to fly the quadcopter, including the quadcopter itself, a high-capacity battery, charger and RC transmitter|
