This is the introductory course to learn to fly first-person view (FPV) drones. Flying a FPV drone uses FPV high-definition goggles to provide a truly immersive experience similar to virtual reality (VR). Students will be introduced to the steps needed to learn to fly a FPV drone using a flight simulator. Note that training on a simulator is a prerequisite for being able to fly a first-person drone without crashing it!
Students can prepare for this course by browsing the information at https://oscarliang.com/fpv-drone-guide/#what-is-fpv-flying. Especially useful is to read chapter 4 "Get a Taste of Flying in a Simulator". Pick a simulator with a compatible controller and get some early practice in before the start of the course.
