Hi there
check out the threads on EZ FLYER or DART XS as they are simple enough

Also the Wot-Next is well documented, and a dead simple build.

just follow the instructions on the thread, and you WILL have a plane that both flies, and grows with your learning.

I cannot recommend a better build to be honest, and alot of the others like myself, you may find yourself growing out of.

Depending upon where you are, will depend upon where you get your raw materials.

USA tend to go to the dollar store, for Dollar Tree foam,
Us in the UK have to order online, from Depron UK or Model Plane Foam (which is US based)

For electronics, alot of us go to either Amazon, Ebay, RCPitstop, HobbyKing, well in fact this list os so large i could be here all day.

But have a good read through of the Foam University (Stickied to the top of the Scratch Built Sub-Forum)

Those pages that are stickied are a wealth of information alone. But if you have any questions about any planes you see, and would too like to build, just post your question on that thread, and i am sure it will be answered accuratly and quickly.

Welcome to the forum.

OK , this is the right forum, lots to read and learn here.

You do not mention how much experience you have flying RC airplanes, because you may face the risk of trying to fly something that not even an expert may fly.
There are many threads in the beginner's forum where starter, trainer, planes are recommended.

so, the suggestion is to first build (or buy) an established and known kit,
a simple trainer, learn to fly with it, and then build progressively according to your talents and fancy...

welcome to the forums, and good luck !

Thats how i got into it JureZ , but unfortunatly i bought completly the wrong plane....


My advice if you wanted to go down that route, would be a High Winged trainer, Like your Typical Cessna, or Cub, both have great learner capabilities, But if you are a well establised flyer, and have a supply of your own gear, then build simple first, As the more elaborate the build, the more that needs to be spot on for it to fly well.

Can you give us some more information , such as :

Do you live in the USA ? If we know where you live we can help you with materials and parts availability .

Have you flown an RC plane before ? If we know your level of experience we can help you with a plane recommendation .
