You bought a drone. And you're probably chomping at the bit to get the battery charged and take it out for the first test flight.
But before you do, you need to be aware of the rules and regulations that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has put in place for flying drones in the U.S.
And you should also be aware of your rights and the rights of those around you.
This class will teach you about the basic rules and regulations guiding the use of flying drones for both personal and professional use.
Class will consist of both lectures and hands-on time with the JJRC H36 6 Axis Quadcopter.
