Public schools and teachers get to understand on how this RC hobbies especially flying RC could be relevant towards their science subjects, where we educate on the basic principle of Aeromodelling physics, thrusts and lift of an aircrafts including Plane and Drones. Thus, this enable underprivileged school children to get the experience of flying RC in more interesting way, beside the safety of flying RC
