Thank you all for your suggestions.

The main reason I asked is, with no thread there is a unity of answers. Even in this thread some suggest 4 channel and others 3 channel to start with. That is where the confusion comes along.

What is important for me is if I start learning( on my own ) with a 3 channel will it be hard to have a successful transition to 4 channel plane?

I should add that I don't have any indoor place to fly the plane, And here in Wellington city wind is something very constant. Will a 3channel trainer be able to cope with some wind ? ( 5-10Mph ) or it is better to start with a 4 channel to learn how to control it when it is a light to moderate wind?

Unfortunately I don't have access to a trainer person, so my help is going to be forums like this and reading different articles plus practicing.


Does any one know about the quality and stability of FMS Cessna 182 with brushless motor and 2.4G RX/TX?


Thanks again everyone for your input
