Picked out parts, but help me out! :)

Hi guys,

I'm relatively new to the scene here! I've always wanted to get involved in RC planes, and now summers coming along and I figured id give it a go!

So i picked out a few parts after doing a bit of research and I want you guys to tell me what you think and if everything will work well together!

Rx/Tx: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...x_Mode_2_.html

Battery Charger: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...cessories.html

Battery Charger Power Adapter: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...er_Supply.html

Battery: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...Lipo_Pack.html

Servo (x4): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...cro_Servo.html

Props: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ting_6pc_.html

ESC: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...ontroller.html

Ok, so those are the parts. I plan on getting a kit like this: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...arehouse_.html. Would all my parts work in that plane? Also, would i be able to use the parts perfectly fine in a slow trainer or other plane im going to eventually build? Also, am i missing anything out?

I appreciate the help! Thanks a ton!

Lars

Where are you?
The plane you linked to is out of the German warehouse and is out of stock.

Do not do not include any item that is out of stock with your order or you could be waiting months for it to ship, they will hold the whole order for that item..

I live in Vienna Austria, but can pick up smaller parts from the US. Just obviously not ship a whole plane like that. Id be ordering all the parts to a US address that I have and then bringing them over myself. Would all those parts be fine with a homebuilt foamie then?

for compatibility make sure the Rx is fine with the ESC. when i went brushless on my cub my stock Rx had problems with the ESC and i had to get another Rx that worked.
this may not be the only potential compatibility issue to watch out for but its the one i experienced so my 2 cents.
btw, if you're planning on carrying the parts yourself why not visit an LHS? the guys there would also know what works best together.

Lars,

This thread might be helpful http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1586139
I'm sure you could find out what I suggested from Hobby King and another sources.
It's a good idea to buy the stuffs you need instead of buying a RTF plane. A RTF will include almost everything needed but you'll find out soon that the included transmitter, receiver, charger and lipo could not work good enough for you.

My advice is to go with a BUILT plane for your first.. No need to go through the unknowns of building when you'll have enough unknowns when you go flying...
