  • Option 2. Flone update workshop. Flone Modification and Extension Workshop

This workshop is proposed as a collaborative space in the development of Flone, in which as an open platform, the possibilities of modifying, altering and improving our Flone are only limited by our imagination.

The idea is to experiment with the Flone structure with gimbal systems for image stabilization and open to any contribution that may arise during the workshop for learning through practice.

During the workshop, the elements that make flight in multicopters possible will be worked on. On a practical level, the activity focuses on the operation of the gimbal systems for image stabilization and the flone ​​frame will be modified to adapt this system.

Addressed to:people eager to learn about the operation of multicopters from a more technical point of view, from practice and with a participatory approach.Participants: 10
