					Choosing A Radio Controlled Plane When you buy a radio controlled plane for the first time, you may hav e some difficulty choosing the plane that will introduce you to the r emote controlled hobby. You will want something that will be fairly c heap to purchase, and will give you a chance to learn how to fly remo te controlled planes before you move onto more advanced planes. If yo u buy the first plane that you see, you could end up having a very ba d experience for your first time, and be completely turned away from the hobby. This is why it is very important to know that there are ma ny different characteristics that you can look for. In this article I will go over most of them. So read on to find out about what you nee d to look for to have the best experience possible when you fly a rad io controlled plane for the first time.

You can buy airplan e kits that require you to build the entire thing from scraps of wood, or you can buy kits that just require you to snap a few parts togethe r. If you want to make a huge, prolonged project out of your radio con trolled plane, then you can buy one that requires full assembly. Howev er, you should always be sure that your building skills are up for it. If you don’t want to spend the time required to do this, or if you do n’t have the prowess to build it, then you can buy a plane that does n ot require any assembly at all.

Slow flying speed is always a benefit, just as driving slow is a good way to learn how to control a car for the first time. Y ou will want a light plane with larger wings that can catch the wind be tter. This will make takeoff easier. You will also want to look for pla nes that have flat bottoms, and wings mounted high on the body. If you get a plane that has all of these features, your maiden flight will be as smooth as possible. Next you need to consider the model of the airplane you are going to b uy. You can get model replicas of almost any type of plane, from the f irst Wright Brothers’ plane to modern military jets. If you are buying a model plane, you are probably already interested in planes to begin with. Think of what plane you are most intrigued by when you look thr ough plane books, and see if you can find a kit that is modeled after that plane. This will give you a personal interest in the model that y ou are getting. When you fly it for the first time, it will be almost

It is a very rewarding hobb y, and it can last you a lifetime if you choose planes that are complia nt with your level of skill.
