Understanding the principles of flight and how they affect your drone are extremely important. In this class you will learn how to conduct pre-flight inspections, takeoffs, landings, coordinated banked turns, forward flight, and in-ground effect. The class will also teach you immediate action drills to help handle emergency situations such as; lost link, handling in air hazards, pilot disorientation, and low battery. 

You will receive walk through training on verifying system settings, calibrating the compass, start-up, two meter check, in-flight operations, landing, shutdown, post flight checks and flight logging.
