RC: Make & Take – Drones 101
Build skills for tomorrow’s industries. From photographers to real estate agents, drones are fast becoming an essential tool in dozens of industries. Young or young at heart, we invite you to join our master hobbyist, Tom Neff, as he walks you through drone kit creation and flight inside our World War II-era hangar. This half-day, hands-on, workshop will teach attendees the basics of drone flight, safety and best practices so you can successfully navigate your drone outside of the classroom environment!
With over 40 years of RC aircraft flight experience, Mr. Neff will give you the tools and confidence you need to build indispensable job skills or to just have some weekend fun!
