Electric RC Planes For Beginners

Mar 28, 2008
If you are just initiated into flying radio controlled model airplanes then we suggest that you begin with electric airplanes almost ready to fly (ARF) or ready to fly (RTF).

Some of the planes listed below are supposed to be the best for beginners. Beginners need planes that are quiet and easy to control and the planes listed below are slow enough for you to react and correct in case you get into a bad situation while flying. They are ideal radio controlled airplanes for flying in your backyard or the park.

1.GWS Zero Fighter ARF Park Flyer

2.Cessna 182 Scale RTF 4CH Electric Airplane

3.Parkzone J3 Piper Cub

4.Firebird XL (More on Popular Firebird Electric Models)

5.Sky Angel RTF Electric 2Ch RC Crash Proof Plane

6.Hobby Zone Super Cub RTF Electric

7.RC Sonic Saber 2 RTR 2CH Electric Airplane

8. Begin-Air 4 Channel RTF Electric RC Airplane

It is strongly recommended that beginners start with electric powered planes as they are easy to control and relatively inexpensive, however if you are only interested in flying a nitro powered airplane and are ready to pay for it then the following models are the best nitro powered radio controlled airplanes. These planes provide a very stable flight and come with the radio system installed. These are the perfect models for beginners desirous of flying nitro powered RC planes.

1.Thunder Tiger Trainer MK 11 SC RTF(TTR4523F)

2.Hangar9 Alpha Trainer 40, RTF - HAN 2475

3.Hangar 9 Arrow 40 Semi-Symmetrical Trainer RTF R/C Airplane.

Following accessories are essential when starting with a nitro powered RC airplane.

Field accessory pack consisting a tote bag, glow plugs, four way glow plug wrench, glow plug igniter with a charger and a chicken starting stick (HAN STAR), and manual fuel pump.

Recoil fuel tubing (HAB 151), Standard fuel tubing (DUB 222), Fuel bottle cap fittings (DUB 192), Twelve' AA" size batteries (FUG 4), Nitro airplane fuel (POW 00037), Fuel line filter (DUB 162), and after run oil (PRA 7140).

A flight simulator is recommended to help you learn and get accustomed to the basic understanding of the radio controls and understand how your transmitter works. RealFlight's G 2 Flight Simulator w/Interlink Mode 2 is the best for beginners. You may also opt for RealFlight's G 2 Flight Simulator w/Interlink Mode 2, Or the RealFlight G3 R/C Flight Simulator & Hanger 9FS One with Mode 2 Controller.

Using an instructor will be even better if you are directly flying a nitro-powered airplane. Learning with an instructor is easier and faster, it also increases your comfort level and confidence. An instructor with a trainer system can be connected to a compatible radio. The instructor acts as a backup in case of tight situations and helps in avoiding damage to the airplane. Flying clubs or the Academy of Model Aeronautics is the best place to find an instructor.
