Micro-scale FPV Racing Drone Class
Hiller Aviation Museum
Learn to fly a tiny, camera-equipped drone using First Person View (FPV) technology in a special workshop at the Hiller Aviation Museum!
This 2.5 hour session covers all the basics of micro-scale drone racing. These small, palm sized drones (3.8 x 3.8 x 2.3 inches) weigh less than 3 ounces. Because of their small size, they are perfect for flying indoors and very safe for children.
Each 2.5 hour program includes:
Leadership & instruction from trained staff and volunteers
Hands-on construction of a micro quadcopter, complete with all accessories.
Intro to LOS (line-of-sight) & FPV flying.
Rules, regulations and best practices.
Available flight simulators to hone pilot skills.
Fly and keep the drone you build.
Registration includes admission for the participant (minimum age 10) and one guest. Pilots ages 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult. All equipment needed to operate the nano drone including, battery and charging equipment, is included.
