Trainer Planes


Here are some options for beginner's planes!

Do not buy an advanced plane like P-51 Mustang or Corsair. These are planes for an experienced pilot, will be difficult to handle and frustrate a beginner!

Have an experienced RC pilot maiden-flight your aircraft. We have seen VERY FEW stock planes fly well without some adjustments and trimming.

Here are some trainer-type planes to consider:
Parkzone Super Cub

E-Flite Apprentice

True Scale Cessna 182

Parkzone Super Decathalon 

Multiplex EasyStar

Hobby-Lobby Wing Dragon 

T-Hawk Extreme  

Expect to spend around $200-$300 for a trainer plane that includes plane, transmitter, battery(s) and battery charger.

Please check our Training Manual for information on transmitters and systems.

 R/C Airplane World has some great info for beginners! You may want to check out their information.
