After putting together a quadcopter with Brian at the shop, many people have expressed interest in learning how to build their own. This class will provide those people with an opportunity to build their very own quadcopter that is large enough to carry a GoPro or FPV camera gear.


There is no cost to attend the class to learn about quadcopters, the parts, assembly, tuning, etc. If an attendee would like to purchase the parts to build a quadcopter of their own, the cost is $270 for the parts listed below in the "Parts" section. Depending on the fluctuation in pricing and availability of parts, some of this cost will be refunded (likely up to $10).

If you have your own 5-channel (or more) programmable transmitter and receiver, let Tyler know when you put in the order so that he won't order you another one (remove $48 from the cost). We will have a LiPo battery balance charger available at the shop, but if you don't have one and want your own to keep, add $40 to the cost.
