Through this initial group of community focused members FlightClub has grown to a strong helpful and interactive community of both experienced and beginner pilots

We have some outstanding accounts and seems to be a little confusion around the rules regarding signing up for a race etc.

  • Registration Process
  • Cancellation Process
  • Event Reminders and Cancellations
  • VTX and Antenna requirements
