Having recently decided to change occupations and become a Commercial UAS Operator I was unsure of what course of action to take. Luckily I found Mongrel Gear and since then haven’t looked back.
The course began with theory for the first half of the day with John providing clear and concise information and answering all questions raised. The course work provided is very well set out and of great use to you after the course. After a great lunch we then moved onto the practical side of the training with John demonstrating and providing a lot of very useful techniques and knowledge for Multi-rotor platforms.
Through this course I have gained much greater understanding of the Platforms, electrical components, flight controller and receiver programming , batteries, operating procedures and most importantly SAFETY. The crew at Mongrel Gear was also able to assist with many other queries about FPV platforms.
By the end of the day I felt much more comfortable and competent with the safe operation and maintenance of my platform. All in all this is an extremely worthwhile course for any enthusiast or person looking to further their RPAS Certification. This has given me the ground work to move from being an enthusiast to a professional.
