Critical information about flying safely
Should I practice flying in my neighborhood?
The short answer is NO. Although there are some very light weight small electric powered aircraft that can be flown in the back yard, or even in your garage, the skills necessary to safely fly your new aircraft are best learned in open spaces where there is nothing obstructing your view. Consider learning to fly with the help of a local RC club before you risk your new aircraft or damage to property at home.
