So You Want To Start Flying German RC Airplanes!

Feb 28, 2008
So you want to start flying German RC airplanes! You have looked around and did your research. You are headed out to purchase a big ole RC controlled model jet fight. Whoa! If you never flown a remote control airplane before, maybe you should learn to stand before walking and then walk before running. A big warbird such as a radio controlled jet is galloping not running.

Ok, so where do I start. Many RC modelers will prefer gliders for the novice flyers. The RC gliders are usually what they started off with to get their feet wet. The 6 foot wingspan of glider class is a perfect size. It is large enough to easily fly but small enough to fit in your car. You will find that beginner gliders are lighter, fly slower and are more tolerable to the non-flying (grumpy) community than gas powered planes. They have no noise or mess. It makes the first time experience a lot more pleasant not having to deal with a lot of other factors.

Gliders are cheaper (the entry level models) than the nitro powered planes. There is no fuel, batteries, and starter etc. to buy. The electric flight models are silent and clean. You will find more tolerance from neighbors around the flying field. All I need is the RC glider and more than likely spare battery packs. With RC gliders, you can fly from smaller fields. Nitro powered RC planes will let you fly longer but because of the noise and weight, you might have to go a field with the population is not a factor.

I really like the looks of German RC Airplanes. Try to be patient. They look cool, inviting, and powerful. It is your choice for your first RC model but try to stay away from those smooth speedy scale jobs! Remember, these machines are fast and they fly furious hard. Have you ever heard of an airplane crash? Buy one of these RC airplanes as your first RC entry and you will become very familiar with crashing. Crashing means breaking. Breaking means it cost you money. I know the trainers aren't as cool looking as a RC F4 jet airplane but using a trainer to learn to fly will make you a better pilot. Hey the Air Force doesn't just put a student pilot in a jet and start training. They use trainers.

RC flying is fun. RC flyers are a friendly group of folks. They can help you learn the sport. They are usually ready to help anyone who asks for help. RC flying is a great hobby. Now go enjoy your self and off into the wild blue yonder!
