About The Event

Learn, Build and Fly your own drone, before they take over the world! That might seem little dramatic, but the DroneAge is near. Join the ranks of drone enthusiasts with a comprehensive, all- inclusive drone building and flight training workshop by Technova Labs.

It's thrilling to explore the science behind these quadcopters and understanding the hidden secrets of aeronautical engineering with a combination of euphoria of being a pilot!

During this 9 hour immersive and interactive workshop:
> Work along the innovators from IIT, Bombay

> Learn about:
1. Mechanics of flying vehicles
-Stable systems vs unstable systems
-State / Degrees of freedom
-State: Position / Orientation, d/dt of various state parameters / beyond d/dt (e.g. d 2 /dt 2 )
-How does propeller work: Change thrust by speed/ angles, Types of aerial vehicles
-Aeroplanes: Why is Aeroplane stable, Is man a stable / unstable systems?
-Multirotors: Types and Functions of sensors and computers, Quadrotors, Bicopters, Helicopter

2. Hardware of Quadcopter
-Motor: Brushed / Brushless / Servo Motor, Parameters of Motor, PWM
-Propellers: How does a fan / propeller works
-ESC: Terminals of motors / Parameters of ESC
-Battery: Types of batteries, Why LiPo / Parameters of LiPo

3. Communication / Controll Quadcopter
