Are you considering a drone purchase but are unsure about what to buy or where to fly it? Join members of KC Multi-Rotor, the metro’s premier drone flying club, to learn the basics of remote-controlled pilotless aircraft: How to select the right model; flight rules and regulations, and how to safely (and legally) fly one. There will also be live demo flights of various drone models.
The lecture is free and open to the public; however, e-tickets are required.
Parking is free in Library parking lots and along the west side of Holmes Street between 51st and 52nd streets. The main entrance to the Library grounds is on Cherry Street. The Linda Hall Library is not affiliated with UMKC. Parking in all UMKC lots is by permit or meter. Doors open at 10 a.m.
