Zero to Q100 in an evening

We’re really excited to announce that we will be running a drone building evening later this year / early 2018.  All tools and parts will be included, and at the end of the session, you’ll take away your own custom drone. The event will be based at our lab in Weymouth.

The workshop is suited to anyone with an interest in making and electronics, aged 16+. No experience required. All skills will be taught on the day.

We’ll be building the Q100 quadcopter, which is a small (100mm diagonal) remote control drone, which can also be loaded with a camera and sensors. Power is provided by a small 3.7v lipo battery to give around 5 minutes of flight time, but again, this can be modified!

The Q100 with camera

You’ll be taught how to:

  • Solder
  • Assemble the flight control board, receiver and motors
  • Flash and configure the flight control software
  • Set up and tune the drone for stable flight

A short presentation on drone safety will also be given, in order to keep your flying safe and enjoyable.

Dates and price TBA, although we expect the cost to be around £80 per head. More information over the coming few days.
