Training description

How about building your own drone? Make it happen at the IPSA Summer School 2023, July 3-21! 

We prepare a 3-week program in Paris dedicated to passionate students who wish to understand and build flying robots.

And get ready, IPSA Summer School is as much about having fun as it is about learning!

Our 3-week program aims at providing you key concepts about the flying equation system and about how to build and control drones with a robotic arm. First, with the expertise of our team, you will learn how to design a robot using one of the most used robotic environments: Robot Operating System. Second, you will build, stabilize, and make a real bicopter fly.

The cultural fun is guaranteed by the interactive visits and intercultural workshops all along the 3-week program.

Week 1: Introduction to drones
You will discover the different types of drones and all about controlling a robotic arm.

Week 2: Multi-motor systems
You will get familiar with the modeling and controlling quadrotor systems.

Week 3: From theory to practice
You will build your own drone and make it fly.
