ADVISOR: Mr. Grul (, Room 120D

Quads Qlub is a casual non-competitive group for learning how to fly drones, taking pictures & 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.

After school (3:15 -4ish p.m.) one day a week (TBD). We also record video at some football and soccer games.

Start in Room 120D and then, weather permitting, move to the southside of the Washburn mall, or at a local park

If you'd like to fly outside, or fly any of our larger drones (Mavic Mini 2, Mavic 2 Pro, Matrice 100), you'll need to do two things:
-get your FAA TRUST certificate: click here to start TRUST (free and takes ~20 min)
-register yourself with the FAA as a Recreational Flyer: click here to start FAADroneZone (super easy and fast - costing only $5 for 3 years)

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

  • Tello (to fly the Tello using your phone as a controller)
  • 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 2 Pro)
  • DJI Fly (Mavic Mini)
  • Aloft Air Control, formerly KittyHawk (to get quick & easy authorization to fly in controlled airspace, which much of South Minneapolis is) 
  • Avia Weather (aviation weather reports)
