RC Plane Training
Interested in learning how to fly RC planes?
Well, there's an App for that. With some initial guidance and some time with a cell phone based app, you can be ready to go out and fly entry level RC planes like the ones below in a matter of days.
This package includes:
Introductory lesson on flying RC Planes
Link to a free phone/tablet App that is so close to actual RC Flying, that if you can land in the App, you can land a real RC Plane
Tips on how to make the best use of the App
Additional pointers for your first flights
Additional Services may be provided for:
Beginners already flying RC: looking for an instructor, or some pointers? I'm available for that as well.
Locals: I'd be happy to take you out and show you some flying. If you have enough time behind the app, I might even let you take the controls for a bit.
Building/Buying: I'm also happy to give advice on the best planes to start with and where to get them, or help building Foam Flite Test planes.
Training & Qualifications
RC Plane Hobbyist for over 15 years. I took more than 5 years off a while back, then spent a week practicing with a phone based game and now fly 8 different planes with wingspans up to 8 feet. I've built some of these planes myself and have flown in all kinds of conditions. I've done some aerobatic flying, and crashed more than 1 plane doing something stupid ;).
Smaller RC Planes are actually pretty easy to fly when there's little to no wind. And from there all it takes is practice and a little more instruction to move up to bigger and better planes and more challenging conditions.
Availability & Preferences
This is mainly a virtual service, but I may be available for in person training as well.
