Then, we go through each item in the box. We will walk through the controls, and actually fly the drone together so you know how to take off, land, and emergency stop. We go through safety, maintenance, cable management, and power management. Lastly, we'll walk through installation for each of the coding platforms: Blockly and Python in PyCharm.
