Activity

Step 1

UNDERSTANDING THE FT GREMLIN COMPONENTS

TIME: Half a period or 15-30 minutes

Prior to building, flying and engineering an FT Gremlin, it is important for the students to understand the different basic components and physics of the mini quadcopter. Students do not need the Power Pack to complete this lesson, however, seeing the components could make for visual connections. Each student should have the following worksheet, see attachment for download and printing.  

Using the internet, past lectures, etc. students are to conduct research to identify and explain the components that make up the FT Gremlin. Teachers! Use the "Get 2 Know Your Gremlin Answer Guide" for grading/lecture purposes. (See Teacher Resources for Download)

See the following Flite Test Getting Started Multirotor Resource


*There are multiple ways of how to deliver this lesson;

  • Teachers can work through this first page along with the students
  • Students can work independently or in a group with a computer and internet to complete worksheet.
  • Hands on approach, students can use another quad to reference and guide their learning through the FT Gremlin unit.

Step 2

UNDERSTANDING HOW THE FT GREMLIN WORKS

Time: Half a period, 15-30 minutes

In the same approach taken to complete Step 1, guide the students through the understanding and completion of second half of the worksheet. Each student should have the following side of the worksheet, see attachment for download and printing.  

THIS LESSON IS COMPLETED! PLEASE MOVE TO LESSON "BUILDING YOUR GREMLIN"
