Flying has always been considered a skillful and enthusiastic sport and one that I first got into by playing flying games online. It is no longer about just flying a plane up in the air, and turning it left and right by the use of the control panel. It has become a challenging sport for those who love the skies and all that flies. Model planes were invented with the intention of giving the flyers a high, especially for those who had the desire and passion, but did not have the means. Now, there are ample of choices for planes, to make them fly and thus change your dreams into reality. But, like I mentioned earlier, it is no longer about just flying a plane, as you would fly a kite. You need to ensure that you are set and ready, before you take off your model airplane.To enable you to do so, there are some things you need to do.
If you have absolutely no knowledge, then you should learn from some books or magazines or even by way of the Internet. Try and gain as much knowledge as you can, about how planes work, and their infinite possibilities, when they are up in the sky. Knowledge is power. Armed with this knowledge, it will become easier for you to decide, what kind of plane you will start with or how best you can make it worth.There are also RTF and ARTF kits available in the market. I feel that you should not go in for an RTF (Ready To Fly) kit, as it is 95% done and ready. But, invest in an ARTF (Almost Ready To Fly) kit, as a lot more has to be assembled. This assembling actually gives you a feel of things, and you will know different parts of a plane, from its wings to the fuselage, engine, batteries, rods, etc. It is only when you handle your own plane, that you will be able to repair and work on the damages, as you are acquainted with its parts. No need of scurrying for help. Be independent.Read More
