What drone do we have?
We are currently using a DJI Phantom 2 called Ellie for training. The Phantom 2 makes an excellent training platform due to its reliabilty and ease of use.
Where can I fly?
During your training we will be looking in depth at the regulations (Air Law & Airspace) but here at RPAS Training International we have our own designated airspace that can be used for all of our training and flight testing.
