About Don Valley MFC
At Don Valley Model Flying Club you will get some of the best training around.
You will probably start on a "Buddy Box". This is a system where two transmitters are coupled together with a special cable. You have one set and the trainer has the other. The trainer will take off for you and set the trim on the aircraft before handing over to you. This is done at the flick of a switch. If you get into problems he can switch back and take control. It is that easy.

What can I fly ?
"I have always liked a big Spitfire or a jet !! “ this is the sort of idea people start with but these tend to be more difficult to fly so are best left till you’ve become more competent.
There are various avenues into model flying these days. You can start with a trainer with either an internal combustion engine or with advances in today’s motors and batteries you can fly electric.
Electric planes start from a small ready to fly kits and go up from there.
The first thing to do is come down to the field one weekend and seek out a training instructor. You can meet others on the field and get a feel for what you can fly and how the club operates.
