Quadcopter

What is this course about?

Aero modeling quad – Quadcopter is a multi rotor air vehicle which has marked its interests for the benefit of both civil and military domains. It’s amazing maneuverability and the ease to fly in constricted locations has achieved itself a remarkable position in the aviation sector. Our workshop helps participants understand the concepts and use of accelerometer sensor, microcontrollers, and wireless communication in designing and controlling a Quadcopter. The duration of this workshop will be two consecutive days with eight hours session each day, in a total of sixteen hours properly divided into theory and hand on practical sessions. At the end of this workshop a competition will be organized among the participating students where each participating student will get Certificate of Participation and the Winners will get Certificate of Merit.

This Workshop Highlights Designing of QuadCopter , Uses of Actuators and Motor , Assembling of various Component’s ,Use of software Firmware Update ,Calibration of Transmitter and Receiver and Live flying with Experts Guidance.
