Well Charles, Welcome Aboard! You are in the correct forum so when you get a question, feel free to ask!
I would recommend a trainer for your first plane as R/C is a whole different ball game as opposed to full-scale flying. The selection you made would be a great 3rd or 4th plane and a plane like http://www.nitroplanes.com/90a271-lt40-kit-yellow.html
a better choice for your first plane. Your radio would work in this plane, but you would have to purchase a smaller engine.
Do you have a club nearby to assist you?
What part of the county do you live?
