This is a follow-up course to the Drones 102 course in which participants built a first-person view (FPV) drone. In this course, students will fly their drones on an open field. Students will meet at the BARN at class time, and then arrange to carpool to the site. The site will be announced closer to class time. Students will be responsible for bringing their own FPV drone, controller, and goggles.
All levels 18+ are welcome.

This is the final class in the Drones series. In previous courses, students learned to fly a first-person view (FPV) drone in a simulator (Drones 101), build an FPV drone (Drones 102), and fly an actual FPV drone (Drones 103). In this class, students will design their own FPV drone in Fusion 360 suitable to be 3D printed.
Please note: You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer. This is critical as no computers are provided, and the design program does not work well with a trackpad. There is no time during the class to download the program. You can download a free trial by clicking here. Look towards the middle of the screen and click on "Create an Account". AutoDesk will send you a confirmation email. Click on the link and go to Download Free Trial. Be sure you choose "Fusion 360 for personal use".

Nothing is as important to a professional artist's or designer's career as a carefully created portfolio. Yet very few people have one that they're proud to show. Something always seems to get in the way of sitting down and figuring out just how you want to define your work, what you want to focus on, and whom you want to attract with a curated group of pieces you've made. Whether you're blowing the dust off your old portfolio, or creating a new one from scratch, this class takes you through the process of creating a strong portfolio step-by-step, identifying concrete objectives, finding holes that need to be filled, and providing encouragement and review along the way.
High schoolers applying to college, people applying to grad school, recent grads about to start the job search, people applying for a job in a design field or in academia, or artists who want to get their work into viewable order either physically or online--all need up-to-date portfolios-- and all are welcome.
