RC Plane Training

30


30 simbi per session - Virtual OK

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.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

It didn't add anything to my cv

I have worked with Ryan before, as he had designed the file for 3D printing. That being said, he really goes above and beyond what your expectations a...re. I asked Ryan to make a soap stamp for my business out of just a jpg file. He was very patient the whole way through, and even tested the print multiple times to ensure I would be getting a quality product. Ryan gets all of the credit for the amazing stampings in the soap I make. I would more than gladly work with him again. HIGHLY recommend Ryan for all your 3D printing needs. P.S. He deserves 10 stars, not 5.show more

I asked Ryan to create me a soap stamp for my logo to stamp into my homemade Goat Milk Soap. Because all I had was a jpg file, he created a 3D file fo...r me and designed everything JUST as I wanted. Note this was without prior experience to making a soap stamp before. Ryan was always professional, and kept in contact throughout the deal. I would gladly work with him again (and will be having him print the file, too!)show more

Ryan has a good looking website, and was able to clearly state what he wanted done to improve it. The communication was good, and payment was fast.
