Flying Drones

Are you interested in the Drone Flying?

SLRCFA offers an active training program to advance newcomers into the sport of radio control flying.  Visit our flying field and participate in an introductory flying lesson from one of our instructors.  Our instructors are ready to begin your one-on-one training!

Here are some great resources, too...

It's safer and cheaper.

Your first flights will be made using a “buddy box” system.  This system utilizes two transmitters, one for the instructor, and one for the student, both connected. At any moment the instructor can take full control of the aircraft.  The risk of damaging the aircraft due to pilot error is almost eliminated... you won't have to buy and repair plane after plane to get experienced.

Get what you need when you need it.

We teach you:
  • Basic aerodynamic principles of flight.
  • FPV (first-person view) setup and principles.
  • How to preflight check the drone.
  • Control inputs and how they effect the drone in flight
  • How to adapt to the environment (wind direction and speed, runway centerline references)
  • How to takeoff, establish the landing pattern, and land.
    (setup, takeoff, control, course adjustments, altitude control, landing setup, and landing)
  • Your first SOLO flights!
