LEARNING TO FLY RADIO CONTROL HELICOPTERS AND AEROPLANES



The minimum cost of starting RC hobbies are as follows:



  1. Electric Plane: RM 1500( Thundertiger Profile 3D,4CH)

  2. Electric Plane: RM650 (Thundertiger P51D EP,3CH)

  3. Electric Helicopter: RM 490 (Esky Lama V3)

  4. Fuel Plane: RM 2500

  5. Fuel Helicopter: RM 3000

With such high cost of starting this hobby, it is recommended that RC hobbyists practise in RC Simulators first before flying real planes and helicopters. It will reduce the damage done to the the machines.



FLIGHT SIMULATORS

The cheapest RC simulator is the FMS. You can download it from: FMS Homepage



The next cheapest costs US29, Clearview:

RC Flight Simulator ClearView - free demo download

This is what I recommend because it can use photo sceneries and can handle helicopters and 3D planes more realistically.



More professional:

RealFlight® G3 Free PhotoField™ Update , which you can order through us or direct to Niko.



AeroFly Professional Deluxe Home

Reflex XTR Sim



Free open source flight simulator:
