Well, there are 3 channel planes and then there ARE 3 channel planes. Most trainer 3 channel planes use throttle, elevator, and rudder. The rudder is used as the primary direction changing surface on these, others use throttle, elevator and aileron, no rudder at all. The 3 channel trainers are pretty easy to fly with the rudder on the right stick as the direction stick. This is the method used by the Hobbyzone Champ, Super Cub and Firebird Stratos. I have seen cheap warbirds for sale that use only the throttle, elevator and ailerons. These are usually not trainers and can be difficult to fly, especially during takeoff and landing.
