10-Introduction to Remote Control Aircraft

Prerequisite:

None

Credit:

.25

Grade Level:

10

This Introduction to Remote Control Aircraft course is designed to expose students to the basic flying and construction requirements to become proficient at both flying and building R/C aircraft. The use of Real Flight R/C Simulation will be a centerpiece of this class to provide students with the foundational skills necessary to become safe and confident R/C pilots. As students strive to become proficient at flying, they can expect a hands-on environment in which they will work within small groups to construct small-scale indoor electric R/C aircraft. Finally, students will learn about the basic electronics required for operation to include the programming of transmitters and receivers for proper servo functionality. For students with an interest in the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry, this class is a must!
