Mastering The Art Of Flying RC Planes

Mar 28, 2008
If you have a good budget and want to be perfect in the art, then you can buy a flight simulator to practice. However, a better idea would be to seek instructions from your local RC plane club to make your hobby fruitful and learn more to fly planes that are bigger and faster. You can also practice flying by yourself as most of the RC planes nowadays are designed with newcomers in mind.

The RC simulator

The RC simulator is a channel radio control transmitter that you can connect to your home PC. It constitutes of powerful software that generates extremely powerful sounds and graphics that let you practice RC flying without worrying about crashing or harming your new RC plane. This is a very popular way of gaining mastery over the art of flying RC planes, as you get to know the art with complete safety. Also it helps you gain co-ordination and reflexes that is much needed for RC flying.

Club Instructions

Club Instructions have proved to be the best method of learning, how to fly RC planes and gain mastery over the art. If you want to jump in deep with the gas model, then this is the best option for you to learn the real life tricks of RC plane, flying with live experience. Clubs have RC flying instructors or pilots and club trainer airplanes for new learners. A club can have either the side-by-side instruction method of teaching or the buddy box system, which is a rather new concept.

Self-Teaching

If you are of the opinion that self-teaching is very difficult and not the thing for you, then you are mistaken. In present times, many electronic RC plane models are made with complete newcomers in mind. But, it is very important to follow the manufacturer's instructions. It's a different story with gas RC planes. These planes are faster and bigger as well. So, it is advisable not to try self-learning with these models.

After you have gained control over the RC plane and learnt how to fly it perfectly in straight alignment, you can try a few aerobatic tricks to impress your friends or charm some ladies. Be careful enough to choose a site that has enough of space, as RC plane aerobatics need more space than normal 'circuit' flying. Also give your aircraft a lot of space above the ground, to perform the aerobatic tricks. The basic aerobatic tricks are the loop, the barrel roll and the stall turn that you can begin with. Once you have gained mastery over it, you can also try performing the Cuban eight and the Immelmann turn.
