Greetings, I'll keep this short........ I am looking for recommendations for a practical first-timer student DIY drone kit. I have 30 electronics technology center students that are a combination of high school juniors and seniors with "store-bought" drone interaction and introductory level flying experience. I would like to take them to the next level of understanding and appreciation of the components encompassing a drone (quad) and I believe that the hands-on experience attained through the complete assembly process would serve to greatly enhance that understanding. I did mention this would be a school/student endeavor so obviously budget is going to be key and $300-$500 kits are simply be out of the question even using 2-3 student member teams per build project. I'm hoping to bring this in at $200 - $250 per unit (anything over $250 becomes a school inventory item which would be a nightmare). I would greatly appreciate any input folks are willing to provide including whether or not this idea is even feasible considering the budget constraints? Clear Skies,
Greetings, As far as the UAV Boot Camp Practicum goes, (for myself and for my high school students in the future) is it ok to perform the pacticum indoors like in a Gymnasium? Here, in Oklahoma (where the winds 'literally' sweep down the plains) it can be tough to get days that are calm enough to fly the sUAS practicum's outdoors. However, I noticed that the practicum videos folks have posted are recorded outside. Hence, the question. Please advise,
Greetings Folks, If you happened to read my post under "Other Manufacturers" about my drone losing power over a pond, landing in the water and sinking, then I would like to expand on that issue here. My primary concern is not so much for the drone itself, but the 2-cell LiPo battery being in the pond and perhaps leaking in time. I realize that LiPo's and water are not a good mix but the pond is deep and retrieval of the drone/battery would be a scuba/snorkel endeavor at minimum. Admittedly, I was amazed at how quickly the drone (a Dromida XL 370) went under considering it is palstic, very light and with rubber landing pads. Should I be seriously concerned and even though it's winter, give my utmost to retrieve the LiPo battery? Normally, our summers pretty much dry up the majority of most ponds in our area. Can/should I wait? Clear Skies,
