So, you've just bought or are considering purchasing your first model?
What next? - Do you just go out and take a chance?

Where will you fly?


So many questions that will arise.
There is a general misconception that you require a license to fly a radio controlled model. This is not true.
However, it IS adviseable to consider some form of insurance.

The British Model Flying Association or BMFA is the National Governing Body for the sport of model flying. Its aims are to promote, protect, organise and encourage model flying within the UK. The mandate for the BMFA to do this comes from the Royal Aero Club (dating back to 1922), the Civil Aviation Authority and Sport UK.
The BMFA's website will provide you with answers to any questions you might have with regards to flying your model.

The British Model Flying Association (BMFA)

We strongly advise you to visit their site and fully understand your responsibilities and their rules and regulations before flying.

Make your flying experience an enjoyable and SAFE one!
