R/C Flight

This workshop introduces you to the math and physics principles and mechanical elements of flight, while teaching you how to build and fly a radio-controlled fixed-wing aircraft. You will also be exposed to concepts related to rotary-wing aircraft as you learn to fly small quadcopters.

You will learn:

  • The math and physics of flight
  • Key components of fixed- and rotary-wing aircraft
  • Aeronautical engineering principles
  • How to pilot an R/C fixed-wing aircraft
