3D Printing and Making Drones with Daddy
If you hear the word 'drone,' most people's first impression is that some kind of high-tech military aircraft is flying over the clouds while the pilot is sitting in a control room hundreds of miles away.
That's not exactly what we're talking about here. More recently, the same term has been used to describe quadcopters: four-propeller remote-control aircraft. Since the flight stability and control algorithms have become more advanced, these miniature aircraft have become cheaper and more usable.
Whether you call them Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), Miniature Pilotless Aircraft, or Flying Mini Robots, drones are becoming increasingly popular. They are still in the early stages in terms of widespread acceptance and use, but drones have already broken through rigid conventional barriers in industries that once appeared impenetrable due to similar technical advances.
In the past few years, drones have become integral to the operations of numerous companies and government agencies and have continued to pierce into areas where other sectors have either stagnated or lagged. From quick deliveries at rush hour to scanning an unreachable military base, drones are proving to be extremely beneficial in places where people are unable to perform in a timely and efficient manner.
‘Making Drones with Daddy’ targets the age group of teenagers and young adults who are willing to explore and learn. The book uses illustrations and explanations to attract young readers and be able to teach with infotainment.
Minjae is a drone freak, but lost when it comes to fundamentals like physics! Luckily, his father, Dr. Kwon, or Dr. Drone, a Senior Drone Specialist who uses real-world examples to help MJ and Aryan to understand the fundamentals of making a drone, and beyond! In 'Making Drones with Daddy', you’ll follow alongside MJ & AT as they learn about drones and other topics like physics of everyday objects, the future of drones, the careers available, the science, terminologies, history, and much more. You will also go through the concepts of the connection between drones and virtual reality, as well as, the connection between drones and Mars.
Drones are very useful machines. In the future, knowing how to use a drone may be as useful as knowing how to read a book. The good news is that learning to build and flying drones and its fundamentals aren’t as hard as learning to read. If you’re mystified by the basics of a UAV or you just need a refresher, 'Making Drones with Daddy' will get you up to speed in a lively, fun, and practical way.
