Remote Control Plane Flying Lesson

Learning to fly a radio-controlled (RC) plane is truly an enjoyable experience. Whether you are just returning to the field after being away, or are simply mesmerized by these scale machines, Scheer Bros. Hobbies aims to be your one stop hobby shop. With RC plane kits and parts for all skill levels, you're sure to find what you need to take flight.!

 Trainers and RTF Plane Kits

  One of the best parts about learning to fly a RC plane includes the number of available models that help you learn the ropes. Trainers are a great way to learn the basics because you can focus on learning the basics of flight and not on the first time jitters.

  Almost Ready to Fly (ARF) and Ready to Fly (RTF) plane kits also provide a means for learning the basics. Most feature a dual combination of large wingspans and a light overall size to keep your flight experience smooth and steady. With a consistent airspeed, you can master beginner aerobatics.


 Considerations Before You Purchase

 Basic Repair

No matter if you're flying at the local field or in your backyard, you are going to damage your RC plane, especially if you are just learning. Make sure you save your owner's manual and understand what common repairs may be needed before you buy. Invest in the right tools and maybe a plane kit with fewer pieces.

 Control Setup

Primary control means you dictate the direction of the ailerons, rudder, throttle, and elevator. Some trainer plane kits come without aileron control, to help keep flight control basic.

 RC Plane Parts

Take an inventory of what is included in your RC plane kit and make sure you order the other parts you need to take flight. Commonly needed items include a RC airplane engine, battery pack, charger, propeller, electronic speed control (ESC), and a radio system. Your radio system should consist of a RC transmitter, servos (as needed), and an aircraft receiver.


 Learning to Fly

After you decide which RC airplane kit will work for you, it's time to hit the field! Here are some concepts to keep in mind:

 Wind

The calmer the air, the better. With gusting winds, you will have little control over your RC plane. Make sure to look outside at how fast the trees are moving or take a look at the weather report before heading out.

 Taking Flight

Always launch your RC plane into the wind. Placing the model in front of you with the nose of the plane lined up at the horizon, gently toss your RC plane upward.

 Environment

Make sure you do not fly in a circle around you. It is a best practice to keep your RC plane in front of you at all times. Develop a healthy distance between you, observers, and your plane to avoid compromising safety.
