Drone Racing In Detail

Courses run 9:30am - 4:30pm* Mon-Fri
*Winchester venue finishes 5:30pm/3:15pm (Last Day)

With the help of our experienced tutors, build your own drone then practise flying on a realistic virtual simulator using a real transmitter to hone your skills. When you're ready, move on to the real thing and race against your classmates to get the fastest time on the circuit.

As well as flying, learn about how drones work and how to tune their performance. Construct and solder your own custom LED racing ring and learn how to program a microcontroller to control it and create impressive visual effects.

FAQs

My child has no experience of remote control drones or planes - can they still attend?
Yes! Our courses cater for all levels, from complete novice to advanced modellers. Our very high ratios (an average of 1 tutor for every 6 campers) allow us to deliver a personalised learning experience for each camper, so everyone gets as much as possible out of their course with us.
Five Stars Year 3 for Jack at Tech Camp and he loved it. The drone course was fabulous and the equipment he brought home with him as part of his course made the additional cost worthwhile ... I would not hesitate to book for a fourth year.
