Michael Corlew, a junior at West Feliciana High School, took his small drone to the West Feliciana Sports Park in St. Francisville on Saturday for test flights.

He used a first person view on his head, which is used to maneuver a radio-controlled drone from the pilot's viewpoint.

Corlew takes a class at school in aerospace engineering, taught by David McMillan, in which students learn to fly different types of drones.
