Drone Educators Never Fly Alone with PCS Edventures Support

Drone Educators Never Fly Alone with PCS Edventures Support

Implementing an indoor or outdoor drone program into your learning environment can feel intimidating. Luckily, PCS Edventures is here to make that process as easy as possible. From safety and legal regulations to technical support and replacement parts, we’re committed to helping educators bring the excitement of UAVs to their learners.

To help educators of any experience level get started with drones, we offer complimentary support, one-on-one orientation webinars, the Discover Drones Training Institute and even customized training options.

Complementary Support & Repairability:

Phone and Email Support:

No matter which drone program you choose, help is just a phone call or email away! Our support team will help you work through technical difficulties with the hardware, questions about the software and any concerns about implementation.

During our business hours (listed in Mountain Time), give us a call at (800) 429-3110. Or, send an email to support@edventures.com and we’ll respond as soon as possible.

Product Orientation Webinars:

Each of our drone programs includes a one-on-one product orientation webinar with our training team. This orientation introduces the curriculum and materials in your kit and answers any questions about your new program.

After purchasing a PCS Edventures program, keep an eye on your inbox for an email from pcs@edventures.com inviting you to schedule your orientation online! If you don’t receive an email, feel free to reach out to us or ask your STEM Program Specialist for more details.

Replacement Parts:

Failure is a positive and valuable part of the learning process. However, in the case of drones, failure may involve your expensive flying robot biting the dust. Before replacing the entire unit, check our drones collection for replacement parts, or give us a call for help fixing up your drone to return to the skies!

Additional Support for Discover Drones:

In addition to free tech support and a complimentary orientation, Discover Drones programs come with even more helpful resources.

  • RubiQ Website - You’ll always have easy access to extensive building instructions, flying guidance and common troubleshooting Q&As on RubiQ’s own website. This site supports each version of Discover Drones, so you don’t have to worry about a forced upgrade every year.
  • On-Demand Unboxing and Introduction - After purchasing Discover Drones, keep an eye on your inbox for an email including on-demand unboxing and introduction videos, as well as advice on what preparation steps you can check off your list before your kit even arrives in the mail.
  • Certifications and FAA Regulations - While we can’t provide legal advice, we’ll go out of our way to keep you updated on changes to regulations that may affect your program. Additionally, we partner with UAV Coach to help you and your students prepare for the TRUST test or Part 107 certification.

If you’re new to drones, it may still feel intimidating to start a Discover Drones program with these complementary resources alone. That’s why we offer more training options to fit your needs and budget.
