Rc Trainer Planes
RC trainer planes are specially designed to train beginners to fly RC airplanes. Before you rush off to get your hands on an expensive RC jet, or Boeing model, try your hand with an RC trainer plane instead. In most cases with novice RC enthusiasts, the plane they are 'trying' to fly is not suitable for them. So beginners should always start with a RC trainer airplane before trying to fly the more advanced RC airplane models, saving themselves both time, money and heartbreak.
RC trainer planes were first created in 1930s in England. But at that time, they were in their experimental stage. RC trainer planes were actually invented to help the British and American armies to train their pilots in the First World War. Some more complex versions of RC trainer planes are still used by the armies for the same purpose, even today. Most early versions of such planes were built by RC plane enthusiasts themselves. These were very simplistic planes made with little consideration for aero dynamics.
But the RC trainer planes available today are quite advanced and are not only designed to be stable, but also to be extremely easy to control. You will find RC trainer planes in both 'Ready to fly' and Kits versions. For those who are interested in building RC models, these kits are best as a starting project. But in order to make them efficiently, you will need some experience with the RC trainer planes. Therefore, try to practice on a ready to fly RC trainer plane before you begin building RC trainer kits.
Some points to remember while buying your first RC trainer plane is that wing design is an important consideration as it controls the stability and control of the plane. Further you have a choice between gas and battery powered RC trainer planes. A battery powered RC trainer plane is best suited for those who have just started fly RC planes as they are much easier to fly and maintain than gas powered planes. Eventually make a decision depending on your budget and level of commitment. You should remember that you are most probably going to wreck your first plane, so buy a RC trainer plane that is easily repairable and is not too heavy on the pocket. If all these conditions are taken into account, go and begin your tryst with the world of RC by buying yourself a brand new RC trainer plane.
