The best beginner RC planes are discussed in detail. Glow & electric powered models are shown, ensuring your first flight will be successful!
The photo below shows the latest rendition of this classic RC
trainer plane. This is the Hangar 9 Alpha Trainer, a high wing, tricycle
landing gear, very stable and easy to fly model, that with the help of a good
flight instructor, will ensure success.
This beginner plane comes completely finished and ready to fly and includes the 5-channel, RC transmitter, shown in the photo.
This approach does mean that you should join one of the many RC airplane clubs, that offers flight instruction and then the instructor will use a "Buddy Box" to control the plane and will allow the beginner to fly by releasing a button on his buddy box transmitter. Any time the beginner gets into trouble, the instructor can take over control and get the model back into a safe flying attitude.
Before joining the club and purchasing the Hangar 9 trainer, check that the club instructors use Spektrum compatible transmitters.
