Gas Model Airplane Buy Tips (RTF, ARF, Kit)

Gas Model Airplane Shopping Tips (RTF, ARF, Kit)

Gas Radio Controlled Planes are more complicated, and which can be found in many different variations all suiting different levels of skill and passion. So it is probably a good idea that only more experienced fliers fly gas planes.

Gas planes usually have more expensive maintenance costs, as well as greater start up costs as opposed to electric planes. Gas planes are also difficult to learn how to fly, so When choosing the right gas plane, you will need to decide if you are going to need an instructor or if are you going to learn by yourself. If you are a beginner you should get a trainer gas rc plane, as this type of plane will help you to learn good flying skills. There are a number of options which you should look at when buying a gas radio controlled plane:

*You should choose a trainer gas plane if you are a beginner
*Wings should be high up on the fuselage above the cabin area
* wing should be large because more lift is created and will make the airplane fly slower
*Look for tricycle landing gear to make landings easier
*A flat bottom wing air foil section for better lift
*Buy a 4 to 6 channel transmitter now
*The bigger the plane, the easier it is to fly

Ready to Fly Gas RC Planes(RTF)
Picking out the right gas rc plane is very important as you don't want to waste your time and money on bad ones. Not too many years ago remote control airplanes required hours and hours of building but now it also comes in a popular ready-to-fly kit (RTF). Some would argue that it takes all the fun away not building it yourself. This is though a matter of opinion whether you like the flying or the construction itself. Especially for the beginning remote control airplane hobbyist there are several advantages to the ready-to-fly planes.

Ready-to-fly pros and cons
Firstly, the remote control airplanes tend to be cheaper so it's not the end of the world if you go crash it. Secondly, many of the models come in aerodynamically stable models that are not too advanced to control for a beginner. Although this means that you might get bored later it still it's good idea (and cheaper!) to start easy. And thirdly, they are of course easy to go fly right away for those of you that tend to be impatient ;0)

Almost Ready to Fly Gas RC Planes(ARF)

Many Model RC airplanes come as almost ready-to-fly kits. And An experienced flyer may kind an almost ready to fly gas plane is perfect. Gas planes fly longer, go higher, and are more stable.The difference from the ready-to-fly kit is quite obvious: It takes a bit more work from you, but not very much. You'd typically spend somewhere between 10 to 30 hours building it.

Let's have a look at a few Almost Ready to Fly models:

Gas RC Planes Kits
Building a gas plane from a kit is no easy task. If you decide to buy a kit then you should be prepared to spend a little extra money as well. One word of advice when buying a kit for a gas plane is that you should always get a giant. Giants are the best to build from a kit because they produce a more satisfying plane and they tend to last longer.
