This course is designed for novice or experienced "droners," just like you, with an interest in learning how to build your own drone... from scratch!

Build and own your first drone


We provide all of the components for your build.  We are using high quality components, and will teach you step-by-step with our experienced instructors how to assemble, calibrate, test and fly your own drone.

It doesn't matter if you've never used a soldering iron or flown a drone.  This is where it all starts!

Knowledge Is KEY


This course will explain the requirements for safe operation of drones for hobby / recreational use, and will cover other important topics such as:

  • Flight Dynamics and Theory

  • Radio Frequencies

  • Aviation Safety

  • Battery Care

  • Flight Modes

  • etc.

The sky is the limit!! ...well, 300ft anyways

You will take a seemingly random pile of components and turn it into a drone that you will fly around at the end of the course!
