  • The components of the quadcopter and how they fit together
  • Some soldering basics
  • Step-by-step building the quadcopter
  • Pre-flight
  • Your first flight
  • 1 free flying lesson (learn with a toy copter before you check the cat’s 9 lives)

The course is supplied with a kit, which will include:

  • Frame with power distribution board
  • 4 x brushless motors
  • 4 x 30A ESC’s
  • 4 x Propellors
