The objective of this training program is to provide a quick start
to drone piloting with the MAVLink protocol. Learning how to pilot
drone and define autonomous mission is very challenging and time
consuming. There is a huge amount of informtaion to know, yet this
information is very scattered on the Internet. By attending the
13-hour training sessions, the participant will have a full
understanding of drone technologies, and will have the ability to
build hos own drone, and enjoy piloting it either with a remote
control or using a ground station.
The Program will contain the following topics:
At the end of this training, it is guaranteed that each participant will be able to:
