Learn2Fly - a Drone Workshop Flying with Fun & Safety
Have you ever wanted to learn how to fly a drone but don't know how to get started? Did you ever want to try on your own but afraid of safety? Here's your chance to learn and enjoy the wonders of flying a quadcopter drone with confidence!
This is a 2 hour workshop where you will learn not only how to properly fly a quadcopter drone, but also the safety and responsibilities in becoming a drone pilot. Those that choose the FPV package will also learn and feel the excitements of flying like you're actually inside the cockpit of the drone.
And the best part of it all, you get to go home with .. YOUR VERY OWN DRONE!
Ages 8+ are welcome (Legal guardian must be present for those under the age of 18 to sign the waiver form)
Advantages of Early Bird sale: - Lower cost - We fully charge the lipo batteries. Average time to full charge is 1hr. (Note: Lithium Polymer (Lipo) batteries are never shipped fully charged for safety reasons.)
This package does not come with a First Person View (FPV) camera for the drone or FPV goggles but can be purchased separately and modified for FPV flying at the workshop or at a later time.
Package 2 : First Person View (FPV) Drone Flying
x1 Blade Inductrix quadcopter drone x1 Radio Controller x1 Lithium Polymer (Lipo) battery x1 FPV camera x1 FPV goggles kit
In addition to learning to fly by Line of Site, you will learn what it takes to be able to fly FPV. We will demonstrate and solder each of your FPV cameras to your drone. Then help you setup connecting your FPV goggles to your drone.
* The choice to use the Blade Inductrix drone for this workshop is for its accessibility to replacement and upgraded parts when compared to other drones in similar size and class. The radio controller is also better than most drones in this class to learn from and upgrade to higher classed drones in the future. It's also the choice in drones for it's safety with people and surrounding environments.
* FPV cameras and FPV goggles will be available for sale should you decide at the workshop that you would like to add on the ability to fly with FPV on your drone.
* Additional lipo batteries will also be on sale at the workshop. The average flight time on a single lipo battery is about 2 to 5 minutes. However for the workshop itself, lipos will be provided for use of learning.

Capoeira Beginners Workshop 2 - August 26, 2017
Hello San Jose! Capoeira Irmandade and The Get Down are once again hosting a beginners workshop for Capoeira. Our first class was a hit, so we're bringing it back :D Whether you were part of the first workshop and want to build on what you learned, or you've never tried capoeira before, we invite you to join us. This is an all-levels workshop; we'll learn basics for those who are new, and intermediate moves for those who want to push themselves. Emphasis will be on interacting with partners.
When: Saturday, August 26 Time: 3:30 - 5:30pm Cost: $20 Tickets at the door.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, music, and self-expression. It shares many movements with breakdancing and tricking. The workshop will be taught by Capoeira Professor Bochecha (Dan Young), who has 16 years experience in training and teaching capoeira around the world.
Proceeds go to making our Batizado (annual belt ceremony/capoeira festival) possible. We will start at 4:30, but it wouldn't hurt to get there a little early to warm-up and stretch. Bring water and loose pants, and expect to sweat!
