Next Course Period: July 2017
Enrollment begins today!


Course Outline: 

This course is a comprehensive dive into the world of unmanned aerial systems with a particular focus on the hottest growing sport of drone-racing. Students will acquire both practical and technical skills with regards to how a drone operates, all its key components, flight-programming, and electrical engineering. Students will also have an opportunity to build their very own racing drone, understand its inner workings, engineer and tune its software, and more importantly, learn how to fly and operate their machine safely.  At the end of the course, the students will have a thorough understanding of the role of each part and component of the drone, know how to program the software and test it in the real world, and learn best practices of flying and drone safety tips. Students will take home the racing drone that they built and can continue to apply their knowledge for fine-tuning and experience endless hours of flying fun.
