Oct 15, 2017, 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM Location: Jewish Community Center, 2310 Oneida St, Utica, NY

tiny whoop build workshop

CNY Drones is hosting a second Tiny Whoop Drone Build, Fly & Take Home Workshop on Sunday, October 15, 2017, at the Jewish Community Center of Utica for ages 11 and up. This 4-hour event is for those who may have tried a drone, but want to know where to begin as a hobbyist.  The workshop is hosted by CNY Drones volunteers with program cost covering standard industry-grade equipment, building and safety materials and venue.  Experienced drone enthusiasts are sharing their knowledge for free.  The event will be held from 12 noon - 4:00 pm in the Gym at 2310 Oneida Street, where a netted test flight zone will allow flyers to get practice with the help of experienced local enthusiasts in a controlled environment. The group hopes the program will help continue to grow their MultiGP Racing Chapter as well as their Model Aviation Student Club by offering quality beginner advice along with a soup-to-nuts kit. Cost is $375.  Each participant will receive their own drone frame, electronics, motor, wiring, transmitter, camera, FPV goggles, batteries and charging station.  Step by step instructions will give participants experience in building, flying, safety, and rebuilding and repair. Participants must pre-register with payment received no later than 4:00pm on October 4, 2017 to allow adequate time for kit shipping.  Workshop size is limited to 8-10 participants.  

CNY Drones is also hosting Drone Info Day @The Parkway on October 1, 2017 at the Utica Parkway Recreation Center in cooperation with the City of Utica Youth Bureau. Event admission is free.  Registration forms for the Tiny Whoop Workshop will be available at Drone Info Day.
