Gold Course: Learn to Design, Build & Maintain a UAV.

Gold Course Learn to Design, Build & Maintain a UAV.

Building your own UAV is enormously satisfying, rewarding and ultimately very cost effective. Learn everything you need to know to build a UAV from its component parts to taking it on its maiden flight!

Cameras and some tips on photography and videography are also discussed. Gimbal technologies for common camera types are also considered.

Ground Station set up and a thorough introduction to FPV (First Person View) and the different technologies are discussed. The course culminates with an extremely enjoyable test flight and a demonstration FPV flight.

Our courses are designed specifically for the complete beginner who wishes to gain a technical and safe practical insight into UAV Piloting. No technical knowledge is required, but a willingness to learn is essential.

Our build and fly Gold 1 day course takes you through the ABC’s of the aircrafts component parts and lab safety, throughout to UAV construction, test and its first flight. Go home with a ready to fly UAV armed with a great deal of technical skill!
