That's what I have. Trex 450se V2.... There is definately way more set up for a heli than a plane...
This Heli is the one I'm using more for learning as far as set up...to me It's a pain.. :)

While on the subject of r/c gliders, I would like to recommend an app to you all. Not sure if its on Idevices but it is on Google play market. It's called PicaSim. There is a free version but you get more gliders and scenery with the paid version. Here's a screen shot.

Jacob is absolutely correct. Danny does a great job. He's even got electrics. Forum is under-used, though.
Here's a pic of a Senior Telemaster. 1/4 scale is even larger.

That's not me or mine, but look at the adaptations.

Hobby store or online Bomber...find a local flying field. They can help alot with setup...And give you a good idea of what it would cost...My radio is an expensive radio you can get cheaper one's. It's all about what you want and can afford....

I like them all bomber.
You can buy Ready to Fly plane's now....
E'flite, Parkzone make many different electric plane's that could get you started and trained. Many of these can be flown from a park or a gym. If you are going to fly gas, I would suggest finding a club, which would be the best thing for learning no matter what.

I'll put some of the smaller set's together to show you....

I have them both. You are correct they are on not expensive and you can buy parts for them.
The champ has been repaired many time's due to using in combat with other flyer's. :cheer:

OOps the white one is a citabria
How did they come up with that name for an aircraft.....? Spell it backwards...Neat huh

Don't count the battery operated plane's you get at wal'mart or toy's r us...the one's I have are different...More control and part's are avialable for the unavoidable crash :)
If you have a flyng club close by go check it out...I consider it like golfing. Depending on where you are at you will make lot's of friends and sometime's opportunity arises... :)
I would hate to suggest anything with out knowing your experience General.
I do know alot of people these day's are using RC flight simulators. I have on, an older one and the plane's act just like the real one's... I used it to get used to Helicoptors. Works great.


I got the batterry operated ones as gifts.....I would like to buy a nice gas operated plane. Im the kind of person who does things without being taught....regardless on how much money it costs lol......As far as flying an r/c plane, I would eventually learn...(without joining a club).....I have lots of space to fly one too...

Paul Mantz, Jr. wrote: When I was in California, I got to see Larry Jolly fly helos. He used to do model flying for movies. Amazing talent!


Hey Paul, I met Larry a bunch of times at our heli flying field in Garden Grove CA, and also at his shop a couple of times. A buddy of mine worked for Larry for a few years. Great stories. While the rest of us are trying not to crash our machines, these guys do it on purpose! And with explosives!

That flying field was an "unsanctioned" (i.e. not AMA insured) field at a small soccer field. It was bordered on two sides by busy streets, and on a third side by a freeway. On one of the last days I flew there (before moving to San Diego), someone turned on their transmitter in the pit area and almost shot me down. My .60 heli (in a fiberglass Jet Ranger fuselage) corkscrewed a couple times while I ran toward it to overcome the interference, and images of my heli diving onto a crowded freeway ran through my head. I saved it, but the landing clearly revealed my shaking hands. The guy was a ham operator (I'm one too) who just assumed that he was the only one on 53.whatever MHz. Idiot. So much for an unsanctioned field with no frequency control. And so much for flying near freeways.

My understanding is that these days, the radios frequency-hunt all by themselves? That would be awesome!

I used to love flying in So.Cal. Corona Del Mar, Torrey Pines, Black's Beach (with cam).

General Jack: Room? I was flying a friend's brand new 1/4 scale Cub in the middle of 2 sod farms. 1 tree in the middle of acres of smooth green grass. You guessed it! I bought a slightly used pile of balsa & the best bottle of whiskey I could find. Alas, nothing would repair his broken heart.

Bomer: Shop around & you can start for under $100-$150. Electric is much more user/neighbor friendly. Cheaper (less accessories needed).

Jacob I would look at the parkzone or eflite plane's they are my favorite's...they make all kind's.
Parkzone and Eflite also make bigger plane's...the Se5a and Albatross are both parkzone's.

The Se5a fly's great. The Albatross hasn't flown yet. I'm waiting for better weather.

There were Question's on the MOM thread I would rather answer here so we don't take up that thread....feel free to ask again...and joke away on here I don't mind...if it get's away from RC it'll alway's swing back...

im sure thats the first time a copter has been landed on a horse's back

kinda reverses the whole industrial age symbolically

I have two hobby super stores down the street and I have no RC craft (plane, boat or car)

shame on me
