Made with Xara Web Designer 1954- Rocky Mountain Modeleers   “So how does training work?” – That has to be one of the most common questions I get from newcomers to the hobby; well, that and, “How high will it go?” The answers are: 1. A buddy box, and 2. Higher than you can see! A buddy box is essentially a dummy transmitter that is connected by a cord to the real transmitter. The instructor is able to select which transmitter controls the airplane. If you get into trouble, or become disoriented, the instructor can take control of the plane with the flip of a switch. This arrangement has saved many planes (mine included). Our instructors have the necessary cords and buddy boxes for most situations; however, because each brand of radio only works with the same brand of buddy box, it would be wise to ask if your instructor’s system will work with yours prior to coming out to the field. We have "Trainer Nights" every Thursday after 5:00 PM during the summer months when priority is given to students for airtime. Otherwise, arrangements can always be made with the instructors to meet at another time. Our instructors graciously volunteer their time to help start you out on the right track, and we greatly appreciate their efforts.
