Intro to Multi-Rotors (Class 1 of 4)

This is the first of a four part series of classes for both novice and experienced pilots desiring to learn how to build and fly multi-rotor Radio Controlled aircraft. The class will have a "hands on" approach with physical examples, a power point presentation as a follow along, and a packet of resources compiled by the two instructors Alan Chervitz and George Papabeis for participants.

1) How they fly.
2) Types – Tris, quads, hex & octos, V-tails, Co-axials.
3) Flight Modes – Acro, stabilized, gps, waypoints, FPV, follow me.
4) Components – air frames, propellers, motors, ESCs, power distribution & batteries, flight controllers, photography gimbals, FPV (First Person Video), OSD (On Screen Display), receivers and transmitters.
5) Costs.
6) Safety – on the ground and in the air

    Packed with information and a presenter who obviously knew his stuff. All we need now is the PDF.

    We are looking forward to tonight's Multi-Rotor Meetup. There is quite a large waiting list so if something has come up which requires you to miss tonight, please cancel your rsvp so an alternate can attend. See everyone tonight!
