2 hours of flying using an indoor drone, radio controller & goggles

Updated: Apr 14, 2022 @ 9:16 am

  • Want to learn the basics of flying an indoor drone without the commitment?  
  • New to FPV (First Person View) flying?
  • Receive a drone as a gift?  
  • Want to learn basic flying skills from some of the area’s most avid recreational hobbyists?

We periodically offer an introductory session to get beginners acquainted with Tiny Whoop class (65mm /  indoor) drones.  Sessions are available during Tech Meets by pre-arrangement.  Participants will work in pairs as pilot & spotter working under the supervision of an experienced mentor.   Drone safety & social responsibility is stressed by our CNY Drones Mentors – experienced drone enthusiasts & AMA members.   Our mentors guide each pair on flying basics using our FPV goggles, radio controller & Tiny Whoop scale drone.   Knowledge is transferable to the use of other drones.   Mentors are available to answer questions beyond the program regarding purchasing beginner drones, further education and/or transferring knowledge to participation in our annual Team Drone Challenge.  Ask any question via our contact form on this site.  We typically respond within 24-48 hours.

  • Ultra-low participant to mentor ratio:  2 to 1  – highly individualized assistance from our mentors!
  • Participant maximum capacity:  8-12  – depending on venue space
  • Age 12+ only – parental consent required
  • a great way for people that are hesitant about buying the equipment needed to get started in the FPV drone hobby to “try before they buy”
  •  Contact Us!   We’re happy to share why our program is so different, including our low fee!
