Some pilots told me to get the RC plane to begin learning the controls and how everything works Well I chose the 400 Ranger to start. I fly drones and flying an airplane is very different you have to control it constantly so I did crash it a lot in the beginning but I started picking it up and it became very exciting And fun I would say that it��s more exciting than flying a drone ??beginning with a drone kind a messed me up I had to retrain my self which I did with that little 400 ranger as a beginner after I learn pretty good with that plane which I still have ripped it apart but glued it back together and it still flies pretty good It was very fun to fly I am older and I never thought RC planes would be that much fun so I moved on to a mid intermediate plane which is the carbon cub S 2 with all the bells and whistle��s if you��re deciding to get that little plane for a beginner I would say that is a great decision to start with then move on to the bigger style planes that fly much better after you learn your controls , I recommend getting the ready to fly version because I bought ready to fly and also bought bind and fly I��m still working on the binding and fly . The ready to fly come ready to go out of the box you just have to kind of put it together it don��t take too long . Now I am progressing up into expert Well kind of sort of still practicing every day and I am becoming very familiar with all the controls I would say that spektrum Remote with the smart battery technology is the best . Yeah you can find everything right here with Amazon some items are on back order because everyone is kind of getting into the sport because of the pandemic just be patient it will get too you Amazon is pretty good with deliveries I give Amazon a lot of credit with their easy ordering and everything comes in great condition so if you are thinking of getting into the RC hobby or trying to become a real pilot yes start off small than move up but make sure that the plane has the new smart technology and with the gyros for beginners it really keeps the plane flying real easy you will have a blast I am enjoying the RC planes a whole lot it is very exciting to fly and with all this Covid going around you can��t get out there in a very wide open space and fly around without worrying about anything. Flight is so much fun for myself it��s addicting just learn your remote and start off small that is a great plane to start with it has the gyros and three modes beginner or intermediate and expert start off with beginner or in immediate but don��t go in expert until you learn everything because it will flip over , do rolls , fly upside down do anything you want an expert but come down very fast also ??
