But the next best thing to actually flying an airplane is flying radio control planes. Radio control planes are small model planes which are operated by a remote controller that communicates with the plane via a radio receiver. The radio controller of the radio control planes has transmitters installed in it which makes the plane fly, turn and rotates in the air. The hand-held radio controller sends signals with the help of switches and joysticks.
