What you'll do

Visit gorgeous New Paltz, NY and fly RC with Steve! First, you will go outside with Steve for an exciting demo flight, then we'll set you up on the computerized simulator to practice your skills (without damaging real planes LOL). Get the most out of your simulator time with the Simulator Lesson Plan. Warning, the simulator is so much fun that it can be addicting! Then it's back to the fresh country air for "hands-on" flying for you on the buddy box with Steve. He can usually rescue you from crashes on this system. Finally, it's your chance to fly solo, if you feel you are ready. Steve will also take you on a tour of his shop and show you how he installs carbon fiber rods in foamies, and some other tips and tricks. You can also bring your own plane if you want/need practice flying that model or reinforcing it. See, Steve's extensive collection of RC planes and quads. Ask questions, test your skills flying and fixing! Also, see and buy some fun RC planes or equipment if you so desire.
