Carolina Drone Lab Lunch and Learn – FPV Drones: the anatomy, applications, and racing!

February 12 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm

Joseph Sharp

Please join us for a lunch and learn with Joseph Sharp on February 12, 11:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., to learn all about FPV drones.

FPV (first-person view) flying means that pilots only see what the drone sees. This is done by having a camera mounted on the drone’s nose, live streaming a video feed to goggles.

Joseph will teach the anatomy of an FPV drone and the applications. He will review the general preparation he goes through before building one (thrust-to-weight ratio and battery life calculations) and how to choose the right parts. There will be a quick review of the building and programming processes, and then we will hear about drone racing and acrobatic freestyle. He will show us his FPV drones throughout the webinar! There will be plenty of time for questions.

Joseph is the fabrication lab manager in the UNC/NCSU Joint Department of Biomedical Engineering. He got his degree in biomedical engineering from the same joint department program, and his specialties were medical microdevices and regenerative medicine. Joseph is an avid drone racer and builds all his own gear. He is a code and computer expert, having worked in and owned a business doing complex repairs of both computer software and hardware.
