Flying Drones
In the middle school engineering class, students learn about three levels of flight and distance with different drone models. First students learn about basic controls and configuration for flying a rotorcraft.  They understand the differences between fixed-wing craft and rotorcraft. They study Newton’s laws of motion and the four forces of flight in-class lecture and activities. They play a simulator in class first with video game controllers (6th graders are experts with this control scheme) and then fly the indoor Tello. Then they upgrade to map systems and the Mavic flight system and we fly to the park and the border of legal airspace by the Alta View Hospital. Students even watch a live ‘life-flight” landing while we fly the drone.
