RC Planes for Beginners - What to Look for in a Starter Plane

 A crucial mistake sometimes made by newcomers to radio control flying is purchasing the wrong model for a first RC airplane. Trying to master basic skills on a fast, sleek multi-channel aircraft designed for the intermediate or advanced level pilot is a sure-fire recipe for frustration and failure and has lead many novices to give up on the hobby before really getting started. 

Beginners should look for a plane with very forgiving characteristics, one specifically designed for the first-time pilot. The best RC plane for beginners is ready to fly (RTF), easy to operate, slow, stable and powered electrically. Entry-level planes provide hours of entertainment for very low cost and may serve as the entry point to a serious involvement in the rewarding and engrossing hobby of RC aviation.

Generally speaking, RC planes for beginners should come ready to fly, with all necessary components already assembled. Starter planes should be designed for toughness and durability.

Building Plastic Model Aircraft or Flying Remote Control Airplanes - do they really reject each other?

Well, for many modellers a short answer could be - YES, but for a few, NO, NO WAY, actually. If you really love aviation, and aircraft modelling, both of them can work very well together. And I'll show you why.

Until then, let's have a brief look over the cons and pros of each of them, in case you want to choose only one form of modelling, or you want to set some priorities
