drone2NOTE DATE CHANGES, below.

Come join a multi-generational learn together community project. Adults and kids over 11 are welcome to participate.

Goal: We’re going to build a tiny drone with a camera to use to take aerial photos of summer events for the Tamworth 250th.

Idea: We’ll meet several times between now and end of June. We’ll work together to build drone, learn to operate, add a camera, research current regulations, and create a user’s guide with rules for safe operation.

Part 1: Thursday, May 19, 4 pm. Meet at Conway Public Library to make the airframe for our drone using their 3-D printer. To see the model we’re going to build, visit http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1098831.

Part 2: Thursday, May 26, 4 pm, drone demo by Riley Stewart. Come see a drone in action. Meet at library, we will go to a nearby location with lots of open space and where we have permission to fly. If raining or too windy, this will be cancelled.

Part 3: Saturday, May 28, 10 am – 1 pm, we will begin assembling our drone.  People with soldering experience are especially welcome.

More sessions will be scheduled in June to complete drone, learn to operate it, and choose and add a wifi camera.

For more info, call the library at 323-8510.
