Flight School – Flying Radio Copters – Learn and Bond
Let you team have some fun while they learn to fly radio controlled (RC) helicopters. Each team member starts by learning the basics of flying. Then they work together to compete challenges, gain points for their squad, and laugh a lot.
This light hearted activity is designed to give everyone confidence flying a copter (even with no prior experience). And that’s the goal, to give every member a chance to master a skill in a short period of time.
