What You’ll Experience in a Week at Drone Flight School
Participants will be given their ModitTM Drone System. This Drone isn’t a typical “buy and fly” drone. Instead, participants will start from scratch and build their own drone utilizing our staff and application based technology. The participants will embark on a journey that teaches not only how to fly, but how all the parts work together to enable it to fly. As the youth learns new information and builds increasing flight proficiency, new challenges and new drone capabilities will be unlocked. All particpants will master the Beginner Level skills and we will cover most of the Intermediate Level Skills. No prior experience necessary; all skill levels are welcome to participate!
