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)
