Our research team has been gaining more and more attention at Cal State Channel Islands in recent months, leading to interesting and unique opportunities popping up all over! Most recently, the president of our University, Dr. Richard Rush, asked the team to teach him how to fly a drone for a recent photo/video shoot. Team leader Paul Spaur and technician Tim Holcombe spent the morning with the President Rush and the school mascot Ecko. The flying took place in Malibu Hall, one of the indoor locations where Dr. Sean Anderson’s first Introduction to Remotely Piloted Systems course was taught last semester. Dr. Rush used our DJI Inspire, while Ecko piloted a Blade 180QX as the university’s media team recorded the fun. The video will be released in the next few weeks!
