Fixed wing Helicopter Quadcopter

Getting started


We fly many types of radio-controlled models, from traditional glow-plug engined aeroplanes to the latest FPV quadcopters ("drones" to the public at large!). When starting the hobby it is easy to spend a lot of money and end up with a model which can only be flown by an expert. The usual result is an expensive crash and a vow to never try flying again! However by following a few simple guidelines, and talking to other members on a Sunday afternoon at the rugby field, it is quite possible to spend a modest amount on a suitable trainer and eventually become one of those experts.
