  1. Wow! This is great stuff. Thank you for forwarding this my way. This is what I am gunning for. I want to talk with these guys. Mike
  2. Thank you for your comments. I have a highly intelligent group who have already mastered Calculus here at a sophomore high school level. So, I am leaning more towards building a platform that contains, GPS, BMS, flight control, ESC, and the rest. I agree that a GPS platform would be great. And, some of the STEM packages I am looking at have GPS as an add on. I eventually want to have mission planning and coding as part of the curriculum. Yet, alone the opportunity for those who are interested, to go for their sUAS 107 ticket. Again, thanks for taking to time to respond. Mike
  3. Hello Spitfire76. Thank you for your email. We have coded Parrot Mambo's and it was child's play for my students. The information in you email opened a huge door for me. I really need to do more research for the best alternatives. And, I beleive you are right about the PCS drones. Just FPV toys without a lot of building of BMS, telemetry, ECS, and etc. I will look more closely at other packages that are out there. I have not worked with ArduPilot. This looks like something I need to work into the curriculum. Thank you. Mike
  4. Hello: I am a robotics teacher and want to introduce drones to my 12th grade advance robotics students. I am going to spend 10K on drones for a drone classroom at my school this January. I have narrowed down the list to PCS, Parallax and UAS 4 Stem Quadzilla. I am just reaching out to people who might have had experience with these drones and programs. I am looking for guidance on which might be the best for a high school curriculum. Got drones in the classroom? I would like to hear from you and any suggestions you might have Thanks in advance. Mike
