This class will introduce students to quadcopter theory together with actual “hands-on” flying of quadrotors in each class session.

The O’Neill cafetorium provides a large space for indoor flying with outdoor flying as weather permits. Each student in the Intro to Quadcopters class will be given a quadrotor to take home after the last class session.
