In this article I have selected what I consider as 5 excellent electric beginner rc planes. You can always start with any other rc plane of your own choice but I will dare to say that if you start with one of the following as your first rc plane you will get a good start.
Selecting your first rc plane
If you have read my earlier article 10 steps to beginner rc planes where I shared my view on what to think about when choosing your first rc plane to buy, you can consider this post as an attempt to narrow your selection down even further. I think it is safe to say that if you choose one of the following rc planes to buy you can’t go wrong. All of them are a good choice and follows my 10 steps to beginner rc planes.
1. Multiplex EasyStar
Comes as a 3-channel configuration stock but is very durable and easy to modify. Also a good plane to use a platform for aerial photography using for example the HD Wing Cam.
2. Wild Hawk
Pretty much the same plane as the EasyStar.
3. Apprentice 15e
A more scale looking rc plane that comes in a 4 channel configuration. This is a step up from the first two rc planes.
4. Multiplex Fun Cub
Similar to the apprentice but 5-channels stock since it also includes flaps. Flies nicely and may be a good choice if you like your first rc plane to look like a real plane. If you choose this one you might consider some upgrades at the same time(?).
5. ClearView RC Flight Simulator
But this is not a rc plane?! No, it’s 50 rc planes in one rc simulator software (and 50 rc helis). This is a really good way to get into the rc hobby and the best of all – you can crash as many times as you want. The ClearView RC Flight Simulator software is the simulator that I use and I really like it.
NOW! If you have some other suggestions on good rc planes for beginner feel free to share that in this post!
Hope you enjoyed the list,
