Topics: Hornet’s Nest: Last Week
We had a large turnout last week. The news coverage seems to be the main cause. 30+ people showed up throughout the day. People were able to test out drones.
Drone Racing League
As for this week, we have a lot going on as well. Bill Reid a Professor at Coleman University has generously donated two FPV (First Person View) DRL (Drone Racing League) kits. These drones need a little bit of repair and soldering skills to get up and running. If you’re interested in helping out with task stop by ask about it.
Programming Drones with Code!
Aside from being a drone testing facility. The Hornet’s Nest is starting a new training program for those interested in learning how to program controlled drone flight with coding. The current project is headed up by Ryan Jones and Dan Wolfson. We will be using the CoDrone developed by RoboLink.com in combination with the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment) and the C Programming Language.

If you just want to learn how to fly a drone. We have excellent drones for the first timer that are exceptionally forgiving. Ask Dan Wolfson when you stop by on Saturday.
