Multicopter Basics #9 - Learning To Fly

Written by Thomas

Here are some tips that will help you to get off the ground while minimizing the chances of your model coming home in pieces!

Don't Rush

It may sound obvious, however, rushing to fly is something many RC pilots, both experienced and inexperienced, do regularly. Make sure you take your time - from building your multicopter through to waiting for the right weather conditions on the day of your first flight.

It's very easy to get caught up in the moment (and hype) and this is when mistakes will occur.

Buy a simulator

There are so many options out there! One simulator that is gaining popularity is RealFlight Drone Edition. It’s a simulator especially developed for flying multirotors. Regardless of which simulator you purchase, they all will help you develop much needed hand and eye coordination.

Buy a small practice multicopter

You can buy small multicopters with a transmitter included for about $40.00. These are fun because you’re not worried about crashing them and you can fly them almost anywhere. As mentioned earlier, this is a great way to also develop hand and eye coordination.

Have some fun and make yourself some little challenges in the house such as flying through something or landing on something.

Buddy Box

You have the option of flying with someone else assisting you with their own transmitter. This gives you real world experience while being coached by an experienced RC pilot.

Developing a checklist

Having a checklist before you fly may seem a bit over the top. However, it really is essential as it will save you if you’re rushing to fly or over excited.There are many checklists out there and some drone apps come with a checklist in them that you can customize.
