This is DC DUG's "getting started" class for the world of multirotors, and is intended as a prelude to the DC DUG build workshop to:
- Help you decide what you need to purchase if you want to build your own multirotor
- Understand the various system components of a multirotor and the basic tradeoffs and limitations involved in each part of the system --- Motors, Propellers, ESCs, Radio Transmitters, Telemetry, FPV.
- Get an idea of what the "state of the art" is
- Learn where to get help
- Meet up with other DC Drone User Group Members and make connections
The scope of this 101 session is to cover the technology basics, and does not at all cover the breadth or depth of topics involved in the world of unmanned aerial systems; such as flight procedures, physics, electrical engineering, aeronautical engineering, control theory, software programming, piloting, ethics and law, etc.
