Tangible Tech Podcast Episode 7: How Drones Fly

Tangible Tech podcaster and AWT blogger/editor Steve Sande is not only a science and tech guy, but he’s a licensed drone pilot. When he’s out flying, one of the common questions he gets from bystanders is “How the (#&$ do those things fly without having wings, a rudder, and that other stuff you see on airplanes?”

In this episode of the Tangible Tech podcast, Steve explains how quadcopters (those drones you see just about everywhere) are able not only to take off and land, but do some pretty amazing maneuvers as well.

Don’t worry; you won’t need a degree in aerospace engineering to understand what Steve’s saying, just an imagination and your hand… You’ll understand what I’m talking about once you listen to the podcast.
