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.

Learn how to build a tricopter V2.6HV! David goes through step by step details of how to build a multirotor featuring wooden booms and a custom vibration-dampening camera tray.

Sir George Cayley, often called the Father of Aeronautics, designed a helicopter powered by a bow-string mechanism with feather blades (similar to the reproduction shown here). Later, he experimented by flying a model with multiple adjustable surfaces, allowing him to understand how every change affected the model’s flight. This model is a ½ scale replica of his original 1804 model. Cayley used the data from these experiments to publish his On Aerial Navigation in 1809.
