ASL has expanded in to the UK, and kicked off the year with our first Maker Faire UK event which was an FPV spectacular with micro-scale racing.
We now bring Micro-scale drone racing to the masses and give you the gateway experience to the thrill of FPV, or "First Person View" flying -- like Superman! So, maybe you've seen drone racing on Youtube, or just heard about it from a friend. Perhaps you have a photography drone and want to make the jump to a zero-latency racing experience, but you don't know where to begin?
We provide a beginners FPV experience that will give you the knowledge and skill required to begin your new drone journey.
Learn to fly a tiny, camera-equipped drone using First Person View (FPV) technology in a special workshop at the University of Essex Colchester campus!
This 90 minute session covers all the basics of micro-scale drone racing. These small, palm sized drones (9.6 x 9.6 x 5.8 cm) and weigh less than 85 grams. Because of their small size, they are perfect for flying indoors and very safe for children.
