3 Tips For RC Airplane Beginners   by Tod Barren

Radio controlled or RC airplanes are becoming quite the fad these days, particularly the electric versions. Globally, RC flying is one of the fastest growing of all pastimes and the sport or competitive side of the hobby is also seeing quite an increase in both participants and spectators. Hobby, sporting event, stress-buster, family entertainment – RC aviation is many things to many people. It can be enjoyed by all age and gender groups and is within the reach of most budgets. If you are ready to get started, your best bet is to look at RC planes for beginners.

RC airplanes are miniature aircraft which are remotely controlled with a handheld transmitter and receiver. While flying an RC airplane is not exactly like piloting a full-size plane – after all, that’s a plastic figure in the cockpit, not you – it is eerily similar and can be a very satisfying physical and mental experience. Many fly strictly for relaxation but these airplanes are as challenging as you want them to be, once you move on to higher levels of flight skills. Those just taking up the hobby should start at the very beginning, with RC planes for beginners.

Here are some helpful tips for those who are just starting out.

1. Opt for a Ready to Fly (RTF) model with a high wing over fuselage design for added stability and ease of control. This type plane will exempt you from the hassle of assembling the aircraft and installing the various components. RTFs are good RC planes for beginners and most models will come with everything you need except AA batteries.

2. For most newcomers, the electric model is better than a glow or nitro-powered plane. Electrics are more reliable and unlike their gas counterparts are quiet, don’t pollute and require very little maintenance. There is no fuel to add or clean off after flights, just charge the battery pack and you are ready for take-off.

3. Jets aircraft are not RC planes for beginners. Jets are much more difficult to fly and should only be operated by intermediate or advanced pilots. If you try to start with a jet there is a good chance you will only total it your first day out. Better to wait until you’re more experienced and well past the beginner stage. With the appropriate first plane, learning to fly needn’t be hard – all you need is practice, persistence and then a little more practice.
