The first RC plane I built was a PT-Electric but I taught myself to fly with a 2 meter sailplane I bought from a co-worker for $20 who built it but never flew it. The PT-E was complete less radio installation and setting in the shop while I taught myself to fly. I had installed the Futaba Attack 4 with the MCR-4a RX/ESC and two S-133 servos in the glider (no motor) with a 6 cell 1500 mah sub C pack that was go in the PT-E. I started my lessons by throwing this glider with the brick in it around a middle school playground.
