RC Planes For The Novice

Jun 1, 2008
Flying is a passionate experience, which only those who have flown before can vouch for. It is an experience only to be felt within, it cannot be seen or touched.

Prior to the year 1930, before model planes were put on trial, boys used to fly kites. The reason I mention this is because most people have always been enamored by the skies, and anything that takes flight. After a lot of crashes, the model planes got better and better. They improved over the years. From a basic wooden model to today's dye cast iron or steel, they have come through a long and arduous journey. But, for the patient hobbyist or fan, it has been a long but fruitful wait. Now anyone and everyone can fly model planes. It does not have to be a person from any particular gender too.

You get unassembled or assembled beginners kits, which are simple enough so you don't have to be a Picasso to do it right. Check out the instructions that come along with it and you will do just fine. Take the park flyer - low maintenance and speed, and less skill required. This is apt for a learner. Even if you are looking at engines, go for the electric ones which run on a battery. They do have speed so you still feel good while flying them.

But they are not as fast as the nitro ones, which may go out of control and crash. You need to take care and choose accordingly. If you know any people who fly regularly, ask them for a few tips. These could prove to be very beneficial, as all the mistakes they made could be avoided by you. Create an interest to learn and pick up pointers, as it is very essential that you know the basics before you send your first plane up. Don't want your first attempt to be a complete disaster, do you?

Ensure that the plane or helicopter you purchase does not require a flying license. As there is going to be a lot of trial and error, till you do become an expert one day, and have a collection of fantastic planes. But till then, remain grounded, and just pursue it as a sport in your free time. We all want to be good at things, but some of us cannot be good at everything. It is only later that you will realize whether you are good at flying or not.

My suggestion to you is - invest in a cheaper plane. You might have to go through a couple of them before you get in tune with the concept of flying. So be prepared, and keep your pocket ready. You also have the option of joining a flying club, as there will be professionals to help you out.
