Learn to Fly

Fifty years ago, learning to fly an RC plane could be a heart-breaking experience, with crashes, radio glitches, complex and time-consuming repairs…

…Today, though, it’s much more fun!

WRCS has over 150 members, including people who have been flying RC for well over half a century. We have volunteer instructors, who can take you from your first questions through to take-off, controlled flight and your first successful landing, then on to going solo, getting your bronze, silver and gold wings, and building and flying the aircraft that you really WANT to fly, and we also have buddy-box systems, to let you experience the thrill of flying your plane, with someone else able to take control, quickly, if things get out of hand.

Modern radio, airframes and power systems are reliable, robust and inexpensive, and we can help beginners make the right choices (or avoid making the wrong ones), so they start with an aircraft and radio combination that suits them.

If you’d prefer, though, WRCS also has radio and trainer aircraft for beginners to get their first experience of flying. These are provided by the club, from club funds, to help newcomers into the sport of aeromodelling.

So, come and visit us, or get in touch with us through our contact form, and one of our instructors can call you for a chat. If you’d like to have a go, see if flying RC is for you, we’ll be happy to help.

We’d love to share our hobby with you!
