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

When? We typically alternate between Tuesdays and Thursdays, either 3:15 - 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.

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
