The AMA welcomes you to discover flight!

In this video series, Lucas shows us how to build a tricopter!

The University of North Dakota offers a very unique four-year degree to students looking to major in aerospace, but not necessarily pilot a commercial or military airplane. The Unmanned Aircraft Systems degree program curriculum at UND prepares students with career objectives aimed at the civil unmanned aircraft systems industry. The Boeing/Insitu Scan Eagle is used by the program as the example platform for the students.

Thank you 3DR, Horizon Hobby, and Atlanta Hobbies for their contributions to the gear used.

The first model aviation club was formed in 1908.. by a woman! Ms. Todd, from her childhood, was always interested in how things worked. She would disassemble toys, typewriters, and was once even scolded for using her mother’s scissors to cut wire. This interest in tinkering led her to design and patent a type writer copy holder in 1896. By the turn of the century her interest turned to aviation, and she began to experiment with rubber-powered models and airships. In 1906 she displayed one of her aircraft at the Aero Club of America show, held in Grand Central Palace, New York.
