Today showed up as a beautiful day. The sun is shining and the snow is rapidly melting away. This fact made me stay away from the computer and my investigations around the Internet for articles and information about beginning R/C airplanes. But during the week I have run over some interesting sites and also found out that there are really good information out there. And there are lots of information! So here are two examples where I spent more time reading and watching:
Dave runs among other things a “ThursdayBeginnerBlog” where he every week go through materials, building foam planes, radio control and many other things. He’s also on YouTube under the name RCSuperPowers with over 100 videos. This man has got me inspired that is for sure! This is really good and has been the my top pick for information. He is currently restructuring into a “version 3” and will be up with new information first week in May.
Good collection of articles for the beginner. I have read a few and will return there. Here is a link to the beginner guides.
I have come to some conclusions this far:
- I will start with an electric foam RTF or ARF plane!
- I will get a simulator and start at that end to get the feeling of flying with a stick radio.
- I will put up a list with my “top pick” links.
These first two conclusions will be discussed in later posts.
I have also come to the conclusion that right now I have to go outside and barbecue! See ya!
