Drone flying for beginners in Wanaka
This introductory course to flying a drone will have you up in the air in only 20 minutes without the cost of buying a drone yourself !
You will learn the basics of drone operation, how to take off and land, position the drone for best photos and videos and navigate around different terrain. You will be flying a dual control drone, so I will be able to both guide you and help you get the best out of your drone experience.
You'll soon be flying both next to and over beautiful Lake Wanaka or soaring over forests - always with a magnificent mountain backdrop. You are encouraged to take your own photos and/or video. At the end of 2 hours, you will have the confidence and basic knowledge to fly a drone by yourself ! you may even be excited enough to buy your own or you may just be happy with the unique experience of being a first-time pilot.
Either way, you can learn at your own pace and time until you are ready to fly and make this a day to remember.
Travellers undertaking this session will spend 20 minutes learning the basics and screen information before driving a couple of minutes to the hills or shoreline of Lake Wanaka learning to fly their drone and taking photos and video if they wish.
