Learning how to fly rc airplanes is a totally exhilarating experience, but it needs to be taken seriously. These 'RC Flight School' pages will take you step-by-step all the way, from choosing and buying your first radio control plane, to flying some basic aerobatics!
As you've probably noticed, flying rc airplanes (and helicopters) has become a hugely popular hobby in recent years; everywhere you look there are radio control aircraft for sale. And when you're out and about, the chances are good that you might see someone somewhere flying something!
And, more importantly, rc aircraft have become increasingly more affordable and easier to fly in recent years.
While the popularity surge is great news for the hobby, the choice of aircraft is overwhelming to the newcomer - and that's not so great. But choosing a suitable rc airplane isn't too difficult, and neither is getting it airborne - so long as you're sensible!
