No more broken drones with this intensive 2 hour course first beginning with a safety briefing and educational presentation and then moving on to basic flight control tutorial where you will be taught to fly the world's smallest quadcopter drone. Using your learned skills and knowledge you must then compete with other pilots in an aerial obstacle course for the chance to become a winner and take your winning micro drone (worth £20) home with you to keep. The final part of the course will focus on ground drones equipped with a wide angle lens camera allowing you the chance to programme a mobile ground robot using extremely simple graphical programming language to follow a basic path and then jump up stairs and over obstacles.
This more technical course is about 3 hours long and concentrates on semi-autonomous flight by GPS waypoints using the latest Parrot Bebop Drone. All the recorded footage from your chosen GPS route shall then be downloaded to a computer where you will then be shown how to edit your videos into professional looking movies. Experience the latest First Person perspective View (FPV) to see what it’s like controlling the drone as if you were actually flying yourself. Using a Virtual Reality Headset and PS3 controller you are able to change the drone’s field of view by simply moving your head in the direction you want to look for a truly immersive flying experience.
This advanced 4 hour course covers fully autonomous flight using computer vision and AI algorithms to successfully navigate in an unknown environment. You will be shown how to program the Ar-Drone 2.0 in a high level language (C++) and given all the support you need to continue developing your AI Drone at home. Topics include Advanced control, Search And Rescue Applications, Intelligent Altitude Controllers Automatic Landing & Image Processing. See a video here
This full day course starts at 9am - 6pm and covers all of the above and more including a professionally edited DVD video of your entire experience showing how you have progressed throughout the experience. There is also a Drone Picnic where a buffet of lunch foods shall be provided allowing you the chance to re-fuel and relax whilst watching an aerial display of breath-taking aerobatics.
Every month a group of drone enthusiasts meet up at various locations to test their skills against each other in a high speed race. There are two types of race, one is a manually controlled race around physical landmarks and the other is a semi-autonomous race where GPS waypoints form the route of the race track.
