The RC planes are supposed to b very hard to fly.
Have also heard of people climbing 40m trees just to retrieve a
$3000 engine from a plane that met the whomping willow.
I'd rather stay on the ground, a lot cheaper

What parts you looking at getting rid of then squizz???
J/k.

My brother bought himself a trainer not long ago, they can be very hard if not balanced right but if u get taught by an instructor its not too bad really.


They arent really all that dear. u can be set up with a trainer for well under a grand

I'll agree with you there Phildee that the trainers and smaller planes are a lot cheaper.

But I used to know a guy whos parents had heaps of planes, from trainers to the replicas of F14A Tomcats.

When playing with the higher quality, a couple of steps out of the trainer, they are enormously exspensive.
But when first entering, some are cheaper then cars.
One i have been told to look at is the glider with a changeable nose so that when no wind is around, swap the nose you have an electric motor installed

WEll dpends too if u want serious scale replica's they cost heaps but he got a 5ch computer radio and a decent OS enging which will go into a stunt plane which he has bought even before flying the trainer

all up I think he has spent 1300 or so including everything he has bough so far, the new plane is a Edge 540 which will be powered by an OS46fx

Hmmm decisions decisions, Cx12 and parts needed or new cd/mp3 deck for the car?
