Quads Qlub

 

Advisor: Grul (peter.grul@mpls.k12.mn.us)

 

What? Quads Qlub is a casual non-competitive group for learning how to fly drones, taking pictures and video with drones, and programming autonomous drone flight. No experience required.

When? We typically alternate between Tuesdays and Thursdays, either 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. or 4:30 - 5:30 p.m.

Where? On the southside of the Washburn mall, or at a local park.

Contact Grul to get on the email list for the latest information.

 

DJI/Ryze Tello drones will be provided, and you're welcome to bring your own drone.

If you'd like to fly our larger drones (Mavic Air 1, Mavic 2 Pro, Matrice 100), you'll need to register yourself with the FAA as a Recreational Flyer. It's super easy and fast, costing only $5 for 3 years! Click here to start: FAADroneZone

 

Suggested phone apps (all free and available for Android and iOS):

  • Tello (Tello)
  • Tello EDU (for programming autonomous flight for the Tello)
  • DroneBlocks (programming autonomous flight for the Tello and other DJI drones)
  • DJI Go (Matrice 100)
  • DJI Go 4 (Mavic Air 1 and Mavic 2 Pro)
  • KittyHawk (to get quick & easy authorization to fly in controlled airspace, which much of South Minneapolis is)
  • Avia Weather (aviation weather reports)
