Director Dan’s Notes: “I took a Typhoon Q500 4K drone apart 3 times, so you don’t have to!”
In the case of learning about drones and the lingo associated with the technology behind them, I took one apart and rebuilt it. In so doing, I’ve learned about ESC’s, motors, firmware updates for drones, controller and cameras, gyroscopes, GPSs, satellites, barometers, wifi networks (yes, there’s more than one per drone), ESC/motor assignment, compass calibration, and so much more.
We're going to have a great time this summer using some of the new terms and flying skills I've been learning . . . all as a part of the curriculum at the School of Hard Knocks!
Drone technology is going to be a big part of Ci 3.0 this summer. If you have a young person who loves science, technology, engineering, or math, and would love to meet others who have the same passion for STEM, check out our summer camp opportunities.
Our mission at Camp Infinity is to inspire students to explore how science and technology can be integrated with a creation apologetics worldview, preparing them to explain and defend their faith and succeed in their STEM education and future careers.
