RC Airplane World.
Radio control flying demystified!
Are you in the market for that perfect pastime?
Learning how to fly Radio Control planes and helicopters, or other types of rc aircraft, is a hobby that has seen a huge popularity explosion in recent years, as more and more people discover its appeal. In fact there aren't many hobbies that can offer the same amount of fulfilment and satisfaction on so many levels!
But if you don't know your rudder from your propeller, trying to get off the ground in this exhilarating and addictive pastime can be a nightmare in more ways than one.
The number and variety of rc aircraft available these days is mind blowing -
- How do you choose?
- Which do you choose?
- What's good and what's not?!
Well that's what RC Airplane World is all about - cutting through the complicated stuff and introducing you to radio control flying in a no-nonsense, down to earth way.
Yep, the aim of this website is to get you flying quickly and safely, and without wasting your valuable time and money!
Outlined below is a brief round-up of what you can expect to find on my pages...
RC Airplane World has all the info you need to know about rc flight training and the different methods you can undertake, such as using an rc flight simulator.
There's also a comprehensive international model flying club directory to help you find a club close to home.
Have a read through the ground school and flight school pages of the website to get a solid understanding of how radio control systems work and how to fly an rc plane. The pages walk you through each step and there are some video tutorials on the flight school pages.
If you want the very best RC Airplane World has to offer, please do check out my two popular e-books: The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Airplanes and The Beginner's Guide To Flying RC Helicopters. Very affordably priced ($19.95 each) the e-books are essential companions for anyone wanting to learn how to fly rc planes and helicopters.
Other pages of my site give you info on all types of radio control aircraft as well as different power types.
The most popular page of the site is the beginner rc airplanes page, but you can also learn about electric planes and helicopters in general, as well as their IC (internal combustion) powered cousins.
Radio control gliders, a personal favourite of mine, and rc jets are also talked about to give you an idea of what to expect from them, should you choose these type of rc aircraft.
There's also heaps of technical information to help you understand what goes on in an rc model - having a healthy understanding of how airplanes fly (and helicopters) and how you control your rc plane will greatly help you get the most out of your new hobby.
Perhaps you like the idea of FPV flying, a relatively new discipline to the radio control aircraft hobby. You can read about my venture into it through that link.
Or maybe you want to bring your rc plane to life with some realistic sounds?...
I'm very happy to be an official reseller of the hugely popular MrRCSound system - sound modules for rc planes down to around 40" wingspan. Andrew Lawrence has created an incredible product here and its success is true testament to his hard work and dedication in developing it.
Above: the MrRCSound system for rc airplanes is available through RC Airplane World.
So as you can see, there's a lot on offer within RC Airplane World.
The pages here will help you get started in this exhilarating and addictive hobby, in fact you can read some nice words from others who have enjoyed RC Airplane World and found it helpful.
The fact is that there's never been a better time to learn how to fly rc aircraft; the prices of radio control products are the cheapest they've ever been, and the availability of aircraft is vast. But while this availability gives us a huge amount of choice, it can also be completely overwhelming for the beginner - so follow the advice throughout this site and you'll have a much easier ride.
So please enjoy your visit and thanks for finding my website. (Incidentally, my name is Pete Carpenter and I'm a genuine rc enthusiast who's happy to help get you into this most rewarding of hobbies! You can read my story right here.)
