The goal is to introduce you to Multirotors. In our hands-on Lab, you can build your first Multirotor from a Quadcopter, Hexacopter or Octocopter. Past attendees have needed just 1 ½ classes to complete their builds.
This class will cover basic principles, individual component function, complete assembly, controller configuration, testing and troubleshooting.
Multirotor assembly kits and parts can be purchased from http://Ctrl.Me as every LA Robotics Member is eligible for a 10% savings discount on any kit when using coupon code checkout ‘Meetup’ in the shopping cart on the top right of the website.

There is absolutely no requirement to purchase kits or parts from Ctrl.me, but your support is greatly appreciated.
CLASS FEE: We changed the fee structure to $20 per build - not per class - (you may include up to 3 people building one Multirotor) to cover essentials like, tools, solder, heat shrink, drinks and addtional Ctrl.Me staff to assist you with anything.
TOOLS: Please bring your own soldering iron if you have one, if not, that is okay too. We have you completely covered.
