Drone Flight Labs — Spring 2017

Students maneuver DJI Phantom 1 quadcopters through the drone obstacle course on the final flight lab of the Spring 2017 semester as part of the “Drone Issues, Applications and Flight” class at the University of Missouri.  With FAA Part 107, this is the first year that outdoor operations are permitted. The course training includes a series of six hands-on exercises that introduces basic maneuvers and then advances to skilled exercises such as “yaw” and “orbit” techniques.  The “Marching Mizzou” band graciously provided their practice lot for training use during the semester.  The class is affiliated with the Missouri Drone Journalism program and promotes safe, responsible and legal use of unmanned aircraft.
