Build a FPV Tiny Whoop Drone Workshop
This paid workshop is designed to introduce anyone to drones with hands-on building of a Tiny Whoop drone. Tiny Whoops are small first-person-view (FPV) quadcopters aircraft equipped with a tiny camera/video transmitter and are flown by their pilots using FPV goggles which are similar to VR headsets. Flying a Tiny Whoop is a lot like a real flying Mario in a Super Mario Galaxy game. They’re super safe and light, weighing only as much as three large marshmallows! With practice, you can quickly improve your piloting skills and explore all kinds of spaces, indoors and out or even race with others at Generator. The workshop also covers a wide range of essential and important information to ensure safe use and flying and how to avoid costly crashes. Material fee includes: A complete kit (you keep) with everything needed to build a great Tiny Whoop and start flying, even racing. It includes FPV goggles w/battery, quadcopter w/upgraded motors, radio transmitter, FPV camera/transmitter, battery, and charger. This class would consist of: Overview and anatomy of a quadcopter drones How to learn how to fly and practice including radio basics...what each stick and buttons do Conversion of a toy quadcopter to a full fledge Tiny Whoop racer/freestyle FPV drone Choosing indoor/outdoor locations and how to notify airports. FPV Drone Racing/Freestyle do's and don'ts Flight risk mitigation and FAA safety briefing Please register and secure space for this workshop at: https://generatorvt.com/classes/drones/#!event/2018/10/16/build-a-fpv-tiny-whoop-drone-workshop DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED IF THERE ARE FEW (or zero) RSVPs SHOWN ON THIS PAGE. All our meetups are advertised to several different clubs and web sites. More people have likely signed up for this workshop using those other methods. Those other methods are completely independent of this page/group and are more active. We will automatically close the meetup to new sign ups once it’s actually full. In the rare and unlikely event we don’t fill up, the workshop will still go on as long as there is at least one paid signup.

What we're about

The Northern New England Drone User Group (NNEDUG) is an organization for amateur and professional drone users that seeks to promote the responsible use of drones for community service, artistic, entrepreneurial, and recreational purposes. All experience levels are welcome.

We get together as a community to share tips, experiences, and of course to do some flying. Learn how to build and use drones in a safe and respectful manner. We regularly hold events to educate the public about the positive role drones can play in our society. Most importantly, we think that drones are a lot of fun!

NNEDUG is a member of the Drone User Group Network (http://droneusergroup.net/), an association of community organizations that promote the use of civilian drone technology for the benefit of humanity.

About RSVPs:

When you RSVP "Yes" to an event please follow through with your commitment to attend. If you can't make it, please change your RSVP to "No" at least 48 hours prior to the event. "No Shows" hurt the trustworthiness of the group and can disrupt our plans. If it's a limited attendance event, it could also prevent other Members that can attend from RSVPing "Yes" or not correctly move members on the waitlist to attending! We understand if emergencies and last minute situations happen, but please be diligent of your RSVP status. Thank you!
