RC Model Airplanes For Beginners

Mar 20, 2008
Flying model planes is fun and a great pastime. It's a hobby that the young and the old alike can embark with rewarding pleasure. There are many types of model planes, but perhaps the most engaging and fun filled to fly is the RC models, which give the pilot the freedom to control the speed and movements of the plane. But again, these models are designed to fit the experience of the pilot. There are some, which are good for the beginners, some for the intermediate flyers and also for the advanced aces.

If you are a beginner, there are various models that you should choose from. These models include Park Flyers and Trainers. Park Flyers are so called, since they are small enough to be flown around a large public park and can be docile enough, to be controlled even on enclosed areas like a gym or a dancing hall. Some of these models are bigger than others and so require a bigger open space. The ready-to-fly class of park flyers is quite popular among hobbyists, and both the beginners and the advanced class, due to their size and easy assembling. The park flyers have further been developed to produce the 3D-flyers. 3D-flyers are light planes, which have higher thrust and this enables them to fly vertically at a constant speed and their maneuvers are fun filled and advanced. Park flyers are inexpensive and can be easily controlled.

There are various brands in the market today of the park flyers. Some of these brands are C.C. Flyers and Ambassador from Megatech. These planes are easily controlled and great fun to fly them. The Ambassador model is more advanced with more controls. Other popular park flyers include A6M Zero, P51-D Mustang, Betty, Potez, and Avion Biplane among others.

Trainers are selected from the real trainer planes, which train pilots. These trainers models too have easy, but fun filled controls making them a good way to ignite the child in you. Among the trainers, Megatech Nitro Airstrike is one of the most popular and most versatile. This model is a nitro powered, ready-to-fly model, which is equipped with a 4 channel Airtronics radio system and M-46 ball bearing engine. The plane has a low wing loading, making it easer to control. Its wing span is 61 inches, made from the reputed balsa wood, which ensures durability and aesthetic value.

It is important though, to consider the accessories that come with these models. For example, you should consider, what type of batteries you want for your electric models, so that you can have fun without worrying about the plane ceasing, due to power failure. With batteries too will come the chargers. Select the chargers that are compatible with your batteries and which fit your needs, both financially and performance wise. Consider also the models, whose parts can easily be found incase of mechanical problems.

So, these are some tips and suggestions to choose and make your RC model airplane ride a pleasure for the beginners.
