“I have always been fascinated by RC planes, but never had the means to break into what used to be a very expensive and difficult hobby. I then found some people on Youtube called FliteTest who broke those barriers by teaching through an entertaining platform. I found that I could afford the equipment as well as build and fly the equipment without joining a club that is far away and costs lots of money. I now have children, we often build gliders together and I am teaching them how to fly RC planes and drones. I enjoy this time and see that they have lots of interest in flight and thus science through this. This hobby has taught me a lot and allowed me to teach and share with my children. If the hobby was more restrictive, I don’t believe that I would have the time or money to stay in the hobby, especially if places where I could fly were restricted.”
