Event description

Description

Learn to fly drones! Perfect your piloting skills in this four-hour hands-on workshop led by experienced drone pilots. You’ll practice flying mini quadcopters manually in a safe and controlled environment. Our instructors will guide you as you practice key skills:

  • Smooth takeoffs and landings
  • Altitude and speed control with throttle
  • Aerial movement with yaw, pitch, and roll
  • Line-of-sight control
  • Maneuvering through an obstacle course

Start with practice runs on a simulator, and advanced pilots can try FPV drones controlled through a remote camera view. We’ll also get you up to speed on quadcopter maintenance and the FAA guidelines that hobby pilots must follow. You’ll even get an up-close look at a custom-built racing drone.

Drone included! Register and receive a Hubsan X4 H107L to take home. It's a great starter drone that's fun to fly and easy to learn. A $40 value.

We’ll provide pizza for lunch. In addition to your new drone at the end of the workshop, you’ll take home a buyer’s guide with suggested accessories.

Drones are taking off all over the world, as a fun hobby and a new industry. Come fly (and learn) with us!

Ages 16 and up.

Refund policy: Refunds are available until 7 days before the workshop.
