Advice For Buying Your Own RC Airplane Many people enjoy a great hobby that involves flying RC airplanes. Some people enjoy taking their store-bought or custom-built aircrafts out for a little joy ride in a nice, open field. It can be a good way to get outdoors, meet new people, and even work on some fine motor skills. There are a variety of things that you need to consider however, when you are just starting out in RC flying. First step should be to educate yourself on what you should expect and read lots of manuals concerning remote control flying and get familiar with the plane you intend on using. Below are a few additional suggestions for beginning flyers. Get Familiar With Your Transmitter Your transmitter is what will let you control your plane's actions. It will make a tremendous difference when having good control over your transmitter to be able to avoid crashing it to the ground and damaging it beyond repair. The most common transmitter method in the US is 2 for 4 channel control. Use small stick movements for much better control and to maintain correct alignment when learning how to use the transmitter. Understand Orientation When you are flying RC airplanes in all directions, it can become all to easy to become disoriented. The controls on the transmitter can change according to what direction your plane is flying which is something you need to keep in mind. The controls are placed one way when it's flying away from you. When it's flying toward you, those controls become reversed. Take time to get familiar with the orientation and control of the aircraft as it will take a little practice. Avoid Over-Control It's normal to get a little panicked when your aircraft does something unpredicted, but you still need to try to keep your stick moves small. A little bit of coaxing will likely get you better results than jerking the actual controls every which way. Fly in Open Areas This is an excellent idea no matter what your level of experience might be. You will be less likely to crash the airplane or worse crash into another flyer when you have room enough for the plane to move in the sky. As you get more experience, you can move on to smaller areas. The best rule of thumb, nonetheless, is to fly where you have sufficient room and are least likely to crash into anything. Fly at a Reasonable Height A lot of trouble can be caused when losing sight of the aircraft or flying into high gusts of wind. Keep the plane at a reasonable height, where you can see it, and keep it out of high winds. This should help you maintain better control over your airplane, reducing the chance of an accident happening.

Advice For Buying Your Own RC Airplane Avoid Spiraling If you take a turn or dive way too steep, you could wind up in a spiral-which could have terrible results if your plane crashes. If the airplane does fall into a spiral, the best way to regain control is to cut off the throttle making the engine idle and place the rudder in the opposite direction of the turn it is spinning in and boosting power as the wings level out. It usually is an invigorating experience to get into the world of flying RC planes. There is a lot to master if you are just starting on your journey. Take the time to learn everything you can about your airplane and flying methods. Use the tips above to help you along. Remember: the best way to get better at it is to get outside and practice.
