Want to learn all about drones?
The ultimate way to learn is to get into it and build your own!
Make-Create’s Drone Makers Course will guide you through the process from start to flying in 9 sessions. We teach in our workshop so you can apply the theory you learn immediately after each lesson.
Our course covers the following key areas:
- What’s a Drone? – Understanding Key Elements
- Drone Hardware – Frames, Motors & Controllers
- Basic Electronics – Components & Soldering
- Drone Software – Flight Controller Setup
- Control Systems – Radios and Telemetry
- Prepare for Launch – Getting Ready to Fly
- Taking to the Air – Drone Control & Flying Safety
After Week 3 we will take a break from theory and spend 2 sessions focussing on your build, before we continue with theory and configuration of your drone.
Our final session, Taking to the Air, will be a flying session on a weekend to flight test your drone! You will learn basic drone control and flying safety. The date will be confirmed later in the course, but is expected to be within 2 – 3 weeks of the course finish date.
Make-Create supply a drone kit as part of the course, including everything you need to get started. Your course fee includes 2 months of Membership of Make-Create, giving you access to all Make-Create sessions so you can keep working on your drone.
This course will run every Thursday evening from 1st July to 27th July.
Each session will start with a theory program, followed by workshop time to build your drone. The Make-Create workshop is open from 6:30pm, so please arrive before the 7pm start time.
