The ELEV-8 v3 Starter Pack spares you the guesswork of figuring out everything needed to build, test, operate and fly a full-sized, durable, education-grade drone.  This pack comes complete with our open-source ELEV-8 v3 quadcopter, a high-quality Spektrum transmitter and receiver, a 5300 mAh Li-Po battery, a 3A Balance Charger, plus other essential accessories. We even include a pack of spare parts for repairs most commonly needed by student sUAV pilots. See the Details tab below for the complete list of Starter Pack contents.

Drones are quickly becoming one of the best ways to bring STEM into schools.  They are exciting, challenging, and can help teach an incredibly wide range of topics. 

But instructional resources are hard to find. With the ELEV-8 v3 Starter Pack, in a single box your students have everything they need for a strong building and operating experience without having to comb through hard-to-find, hard-to-understand, or incomplete websites, manuals, and online videos. See our ELEV-8 Quadcopter Tutorial series.
