Build a QuadCopter Dad & Lad Workshop

Postby GarethRens » Sat Oct 06, 2012 1:40 am

While chatting to Kevin Perkins today, he came up with a great idea!

Being a Dad he suggested I host a Dad and Lads day with regards to multirotors.
The idea is get a bunch of Dads and their sons (or anyone for that matter) together and build a small quadcopter from scratch with them. All the way from soldering up the ESCS to finally attaching a camera and flying it. Perhaps even letting them try flying it themselves (a buddy box might be a good idea ;)

This workshop would be great for people that are interested in the hobby but dont know where to go or where to start.

We could host it in a park somewhere in Johannesburg. Make a day of it! :)

What do you guys think?

P.S. Thanks Kev for the idea!
