CASA runs Drones Masterclass for UNESCO London International Youth Science Forum 2019
8 August 2019
CASA’s Drones4Good team ran another popular Drones Masterclass for the London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) on Friday 26th July.
Our researchers Richard Milton, Valerio Signorelli and Farzaneh Bahrami worked with thirty students split into five groups who were tasked with building and flying their own quadcopters. After showing them a presentation of the Remap LIMA project which inspired the original Drones4Good project, the team showed them how the drones work, including a view of the sensors that are used to make them fly.
For this workshop, the team introduced a new frame, the 3D Dragonfly. It’s the lightest of all the frames, quite a challenge to build and very manoeuvrable in the air. Needless to say, neither of the fist two prototypes survived to the end.
