Yes you can fly an r/c plane with a cox .049 and a 2 channel radio.

Check out any of the Herr kits also the Ace kits such as the Grasshopper, or Whizard.

you can take a look at them here

Yeah, my vot is for the Whizard! After some years out of production, TT finally recognised how good this model is. I have seen many built, and were very successful trainers. Some groups even went so far as to race them, because they are so cheap. Can't go wrong.

another one is the Sureflite 1/2 A Cub. This is an all foam plane that you cover with low heat covering like Econokote or Coverite "Black Baron" film.

I converted this plane to gas. I don't use the throttle much, but be sure you can keep up with it before you put a throttleless engine on it.
