Monthly get-togethers will keep the project rolling and allow everyone to learn by doing. We will build the frame, paint it, install the electronics, unravel the mystery of programming the flight controller and eventually learn how to fly the craft.We have successfully built a Quadcopter. It's an H-frame, loosely following the free plans made available from Flite Test. We used spare parts that people had kicking around and purchased a low-cost KK2 flight controller.There's no cost, just come and have fun, this is open to members and non-members.If you're multirotor project has stalled, bring it on down. We have all the tools you could possibly need and a bunch of hands to get you going again!In addition. several members will be working on their personal aircrafts.Last meeting we got the Quadcopter to fly. We spent a little bit of time changing the settings to make it fly better, and it did. We have a little bit more to do with tuning the software and tidying up the build. We will focus on that this coming workshop.Because we will have power tools tooling and Multi-Rotors flying, we need to limit this Workshop to attendees ages 13 and up, 13-17 year olds require a parent.Learning To Fly:We are at the point where we need to learn to fly this thing. We will have two mini Hubsan X4 quadcopters to practice flying around a mini obstacle course.We will have a Flight Simulator [RC Desk Pilot] operational for you to get a virtual feel of the controls.Weather (and confidence) permitting, we will try to fly the CTH Quadcopter outside!In addition. several members will be working on their personal aircrafts. If you have an RC project that needs a kick in the pants, bring it down to CTH. We have all the tools and teamwork you could possibly need to get your project back on track.
