The Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) and DJI, in collaboration with Fly-Robotics, will host an introductory small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS) course, called UAS4PublicSafety, open to public safety officials from June 21 to 25 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The first mass produced model airplane engine was designed and built by 16-year old Bill Brown, Jr. His friend, Maxwell Bassett designed model aircraft to test the engines. In 1933, flying with a gas engine, Max won the Mulvihill, Cabin model Stout, and the Moffeft International Trophy because the rules did not yet stipulate the type of power.
