Who doesn’t envy birds for their ability to fly high and cruise amongst the clouds? The power of flight is something that many of us wish we could have. However, since that is not really possible (well at least not at the moment), the next best option is to be a pilot. But that too may not be feasible and practical for everyone and that’s when Radio controlled planes turn into saviors for lovers of the skies. Flying radio controlled planes is one way of realizing your passion for flying and doing it in a much safer way than being in the pilot seat. The one thing about Radio Controlled or Remote Controlled or RC planes is that you will be able to find a mini-version of almost any plane that has been invented by an aerospace company
or the military. The looks of these winged wonders will mimic the real thing and their performance will be similarly thrilling as well.
Easy does it
Those who are novices and are just testing the skies should harness their eagerness and start with something a notch lower than a 5-channel-controlled high speed jet. It’s better to start small with something like a 3-channel trainer instead. You will find no dearth of styles, designs, models and colors and very literally when it comes to choice- the sky is the limit! Look for something in a median price range and also pay attention to the actual hardware. Opting for subpar equipment will only give you subpar flight.
For the professionals
If you are looking for aerobatics, you will have to opt for planes that have stronger motors and batteries and all those stall turns, inverted flights and pulling knife edges will be in your hands. You will have to build/assemble your planes and that is fun too. It just gives you a sense of achievement. Don’t be tempted to buy the intermediate level aircrafts
if you are a budding RC aircraft enthusiast. Go easy, get a feel of your wings with beginners aircrafts and then transition onto the more complicated ones. This incredibly popular hobby is one that will have you hooked, so wing by every cloud and enjoy the journey.
