Read Reviews Before You Buy Your RC Plane

Mar 27, 2008
Anyone planning to buy an RC model plane is excited about the idea. If you are a novice for example, you might have thought any model that comes with a radio device will do for you. But, buying RC planes is not just about getting any model and flying around in public parks. There are many things one needs to know. For this reason, it is important to always read reviews, before buying your model RC plane.

The first important information that you need to have and would find useful is to choose the right model, which best suits you. A novice cannot easily handle all model planes. Even if you are an expert, you may buy a model plane that is not fun for you. For those who are just beginning to fly, Park flyer and trainers are ideal for them. Then, there are glow plug engines, electric powered and sailplane aircrafts for those who have more advanced knowledge. There are jets, pylon racers, autogyros, helicopters, 3D aircraft and other planes, which can be flown for competitions and pose more challenging, while controlling, for those who are expert pilots. This information will be available, only if you read reviews.

By reading reviews, you will know the prices of these planes and can help you to compare these prices. Looking at the expensive prices, you may even think of foregoing your hobby. But RC planes are not that expensive, especially for the novice. You can get a good trainer for less than $150, including the engine and the radio. If you need an advanced plane with more controls, then you need to put in extra money. So, with around $400 in hand, you can get yourself a very attractive trainer. In general, an investment of around $300 to $500 could be a very good bargain to start with. You would also know the price of other advanced models, if you consider buying them, while comparing prices of various models.

By reading reviews, you will know, which models are easy to maintain and which are not. It's always good to buy models which can be repaired easily and whose parts are readily available. Some models, especially trainers have fewer parts than the others and these models are good especially for beginners. Reading reviews, helps you to get information on accessories and what is good for the model, you plan to buy. For example, you can get information on various batteries and chargers available for your RC model plane. Not all batteries are compatible with all models and so are the chargers.

Reading reviews, will give you first hand knowledge of what is new in the world of RC planes. For example you can get to know of the new attachments of advanced planes. If you are an expert, you may consider buying a sophisticated model or if you are a novice, you may choose to buy a simpler one that is easier to maintain and handle to last a few more miles. Hence, it is very essential to read reviews before you consider to buy your RC plane.
