How to Choose Your First RC Airplane

RC airplanes can be a very enjoyable hobby provided that you choose the right airplane to start with. It is important that your first airplane be easy to build and easy to fly.

The first thing that you will need to do is to realistically assess your building skills. There are a wide variety of remote controlled airplanes available, with a wide range of building skills required. Some kits will require you to build the whole thing yourself out of pieces of wood, some kits just require putting together a few parts, and some RC planes come ready to fly. A scratch built plane is a major project that will take several months to assemble. If you enjoy building things this can be a good choice, if not you should probably consider an airplane that requires less assembly work.

It is important to remember that flying an RC plane requires some serious flying skills. You will need to find an airplane that matches your skill level. For a beginner you will want a stable airplane that flies slowly. The bigger the wing the better for the beginner, this will make the airplane more stable and easier to fly. An airplane with a high wing is also easier for the beginner to fly. As you gain experience you can move up to higher performance airplanes.

Deciding on the type of airplane you are interested in is a highly personal choice. You will have to decide what type of airplane you are interested in. Whether it be a modern fighter plane, or an old fashioned biplane there is probably a kit available. You can pretty much choose any type of airplane that you want providing that your building and flying skills are up to it.

RC airplanes can be an enjoyable hobby providing you choose the right airplane. Trying to build or fly an airplane that exceeds your skill level is no fun, and you will quickly lose interest. It is important that you choose your first RC airplane carefully so that you select one that is commensurate with your skill level. It is also a good idea to choose a cheap airplane to start with while you are learning to fly it. You will have crashes while you are learning so don't spend to much money on a plane until your flying skills reach the point where crashes are infrequent.
