Drone racing is the latest in high-speed sports where you where an FPV headset whilst flying a drone; you'll see what the drone sees as you pilot the drone around a course.  For this world-first, we'll ship you an advanced drone kit including headset, charger, and spare batteries.  The drone is super-fun to fly, but also very safe, with full prop guards, so you can pilot it around the inside of your own house.  Learn the physics of drone flight, maintenance, repair, and programming of what are fast becoming one of the most exciting and fast-changing pieces of technology.  N.B. This course uses a pre-built drone.  The major purpose of this course is to teach drone piloting/racing skills.  We use the 'Velocidrone' simulator with 'Micro Class Quads' content which you will need to purchase separately at a cost of £20.99.  It requires 30GB free disk space.
