Rc Gas Planes

These days, the remote controlled planes lovers are really spoilt for choice. There are so many choices in every field related to the hobby-grade remote controlled model planes. There is a choice in types, models, sizes and even the fuel they will run on. RC planes which run on gas are the most widely used hobby grade model planes. Known as RC gas planes, such planes run on nitro fuel. Today, RC gas planes are the most widely used model planes by model air plane hobbyists. The main reason behind the popularity of RC gas planes is that it gives the feel of flying an actual plane. The power and performance of RC gas planes is incomparable to any other model plane.

If we look in the history then we find the earliest instance of a gas fuelled model plane in the 1920s. This was a mono-plane developed in England by the Royal Aircraft Establishment which was the research department in England at the time. This model plane was powered by lynx engine.

But before buying one of the RC gas planes for yourself, you should get a little experience in flying and maintaining RC airplanes. That's mainly due to the fact that the maintenance of RC gas planes is quite difficult. That is obvious as RC gas planes have an internal combustion engine in them.

RC gas planes are also a little difficult to control thus, only purchase one after getting enough experience with the electric RC planes. But once you get accustomed to it, then there is nothing that can stop you. The performance of these planes is extraordinary. In fact, these planes are so realistic that they are also used to train pilots.

For a newbie hobbyist, the price of RC gas planes can be a little steep, more than what you may have expected but any experience model plane enthusiast will tell you that the price is totally worth it. These planes also require a much bigger commitment than an electric model plane when it comes to maintenance and repair. Regular repairs like change of oil, cleaning various parts and changing the worn out parts is a must, with the RC gas plane.

In order to pursue this hobby more enthusiastically, you must join a flying club in your area. This will let you interact with the people with similar interests as you do and you will also be able to improve your flying skills. After all, who doesn't like to spend time doing they have always dreamed of RC Gas planes let you fulfill your dreams in the true sense of the word.
