Nano Drone Workshop ($199 – $179 Members)
Micro-scale drone racing is the fastest, easiest way to become a drone sports pilot. This special 2.5 hour program presented by Aerial Sports League and the Hiller Aviation Museum features a tiny but powerful quad-rotor helicopter with integrated camera and FPV Watch, a screen system that provides a drone’s eye view of flight to the pilot at the controls. Each program features:
- Introduction to drone operations
- Nano drone systems and flight preparation
- Flight training using drone flight simulators
- Progressive flight training in the Museum’s Drone Plex
- Complete FPV nano drone flight system, including aircraft, camera, radio, screen and more
Students learn the basic by building their own micro-drone from scratch, with hands-on help and guidance from ASL’s professional pilot instructors. Students then learn to fly, starting with basic hover-and-land skills to more advanced racing techniques.
Registration includes admission for the participant (minimum age 10) and one guest. Pilots ages 10-14 must be accompanied by an adult. All equipment needed to operate the nano drone including, battery and charging equipment, is included.
