So earlier this semester the club applied for a £600 grant from the Strathclyde Students’ Union for core equipment, and we are very pleased to announce we have been successful in obtaining this grant. The committee put together a purchase list that we would like to share-
This includes parts for two race quad-copters; two transmitters; FPV gear for one quadcopter; an rx for a plane we have been generously gifted by PropNuts, along with accompanying batteries for the aforementioned. To complement this we also purchased 3 drone racing gates which we can take out to the flying field.
This is a sizable investment in the club and one that will open many new opportunities for us. We hope to announce our plans for next semester, in which we hope to launch the society officially, in the coming week.
Keep up with the Facebook for news about donations we have received from our friends at PropNuts that will allow us to further increase the opportunities we can provide for learning and flying.
