Six Keys to Success for New Pilots

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whether you have a coach or you are trying to learn to fly on your own, you
will need to be mindful of these six areas if you are going to become a
successful RC pilot. After two years of working with new flyer's at our club,
and coaching flyer's on the forums, there are a few things I have seen as the
key areas to stress for new pilots. Some get it right away and some have to
work at it. They are in no particular order because they all have to be
learned to be successful.

WIND
Orientation
Speed
Altitude
Over Control
Preflight Check

Not my creation just good advice from a fellow pilot (aeajr)

If you don't have a UM T-28 Trojan get one you will love it. This plane is not for beginners.

Highest yet.wmv (3 min 34 sec)

Approx 400 feet could not tell if it was climbing or holding in the wind, Calm at the surface not so much at altitude.

Had a blast, Slapped the Vid cam under her and not so bad. She was a little nose heavy and it was windy. But she takes the camera up quick.
