Purchasing Your First RC Airplane

Today, there are various types of RC airplanes in the market. Below are the aspects you should consider when buying your first plane:

1. Size: You can measure the toy from its wingspan. The total wingspan size is measured from tip to tip. Commonly, a 50 inch length wingspan is considered as a good size. The size you should choose depends on your flying space and confidence level. The RTF electric park RC airplanes can be your ideal choice as their size ranging from 40 inches to 60 inches.

2. Stability: Stability is an important aspect you should always consider especially if you are a beginner. Make sure that you choose a plane with a high wing trainer. This design enables you to get better stability in the air.

3. Power: The power you choose depends on the location you want to fly your RC plane. If you plan to fly it in a park, an electric-powered plane would be an ideal choice.

4. Material: RC planes are made of various materials like foam, plywood or balsa wood. Foam is a light material and it is suitable for beginners. Meanwhile, balsa and plywood are heavier so that they tend to suffer greater damage in a crash.

5. Parts: Check your plane inside out before making purchase. Pay attention to the parts and other important aspects like wiring and transmitter sticks.

6. Final Assembly: Check the final assembly of your plane. Before flying it, make sure that you fix the wing, fit the propeller and spinner and secure the tail plane.
