Basic safe flying at the club

The following rules must be followed to promote safe flying at the club.

If you are a new flyer you'll soon realise that R/C helicopters can be very dangerous if basic safety

measures are not followed.

The club safety officer is available to give advice at the field most weekends, Saturdays and Sundays. Alternatively you can always ask the more experienced members for guidance, they'll be more than happy to help.  Remember, safety is everyone's responsibility and in everyone's best interests.

  1. NEVER switch your transmitter on until you've checked the frequency board to see if your channel is free.
  2. NEVER leave a helicopter with its engine running un-attended.
  3. NEVER fly in or over the pits or car parking area.
  4. ALWAYS put a tag, normally your membership card, on the frequency  board to indicate which channel you are using BEFORE you switch your transmitter on.
  5. ONLY fly from the peg positions indicated along the side of the field. Which side of the field is designated for flying may depend on the prevailing conditions.
  6. Please adhere to the following peg usage:

                      Peg 1. Beginners have priority - hovering only

                      Peg 2 -6 Any flying style
