This workshop will guide you through the process of building a simple, DIY hobby quadcopter drone with a focus on explaining major concepts along the way. It will cover the necessary hardware components, construction, control software, and basic flight principles. The workshop will be hands-on, and we’ll construct and program a demo drone in real-time with the goal of a having a flying system at the end of the 90-minute session!
