Want to feel confident in flying a drone, come and learn about the technology and basics of flight with us.
A drone is an aircraft. Understanding the basics of your drone, its limitations and basic flight modes, your flying environment and the regulations associated with drone flight is fundamental to safe and responsible drone usage.
As part of your new drone purchased at Drones2, we will familiarise you with regulations, drone technology and the basic functions for your new drone. We want you to get the most out of your new drone and for you to have the basic knowledge and understanding to fly in control, safely and responsibly. Pop into our store, or check out our drone range on our website.
Our familiarisation sessions are run in Perth, but we can also provide regional and remote sessions over the phone. There are two training options:
Drone Field Training
- Drone technology, you learn the basics of this advanced technology so that you understand how the drone works and feel more confident operating your drone.
- Regulations, drones are essentially remotely piloted (un-manned) aircraft and there are strict regulations associated with where, when and how to fly.
- Operating your drone, we bring the learning back to your drone, overview procedures pre and post flight and guidance with developing manual flying skills.
- Practical flying exercises in the field to equip new donre users with the basics of manual flight. This session involves all aspects from pre flight, start up, flying exercises and post flight. Whilst many drones have the technology to fly themselves, your capability in manual flight will equip you to avoid collisions and potential loss of your aircraft.

Customised and Group Training Sessions
We also carry out private one on one, group training and can customise a session to your needs, including at your preferred worksite. Please contact us with your training query.
Aerial Photography Skills
Drones are excellent aerial imaging devices, once you feel comfortable flying your drone, the next step is mastering your aerial photography skills.
We run a two part photography session covering all of these aspects and more. Our trainer is qualified in photography, uses professional drone platforms in both photography and videography and will equip you with the basics from mission planning, camera settings, image capture strategies and suitable post processing programs to use.
Part 1 covers basics of flying drones for image capture, camera settings for different applications, use of filters, all to get you up to speed with how to approach aerial imaging.
Part 2 covers the editing or post processing to transform your images into different formats for you to share and enjoy.
While our focus is on DJI and Yuneec drones, our expecrtise is in drone technology across many systems, including open source (build and program your own). We are open to training you whatever drone you may have, so contact us to discuss.
