RC Safety – S2E2

January 17, 2017

Michael and Jay discuss some of the several mishaps that they have encountered over the years.  Some of the Do’s and Dont’s out at the field.  The new Radios have the ability to program a throttle cut off and its  a good safety habit.  Removing the props on your aircraft prior to any work will shrink the probability of disasters while performing any repairs.  Using common sense is a great way to prevent accidents.
