Found this thread and seems to be where i need to start.
A little about me first so everyone knows what to expect.....hard to figure out sometmes on some posts.I have been over in the RC Tank section for the last several years here on RCU.My house looks like a toy store.
I have been building planes for many years and have flown them off and on for several years.(lost track )i'm not a kid,i'm 69 years old and still in pretty good shape.I'm not a pro-flyer by and means,but can get them up and fly them for a while and 90% of the time back on the ground in one piece.
I have all gas planes (glo-fuel) of mostly 40 size and up.I have radios running out my ears from all the different models i own. (helis-cars-boats-tanks-Airplanes and even into HO trains. (this is the part i would like to stress......I don't buy the so called ''top of the line '' anything.
One thing i have found in the hobby world,what is the so called best today is just another used outdated item a few years from now that nobody wants to buy or use any more.So the so called ''best'' or ''top of the line'' don't mean much to me.What counts to me is getting what will work to do what you want to do,and for the least amount of dollars to do it.''the best bang for the buck''.Just that simple.
Just looking for fun,got nothing to prove to anyone.
Sorry about the book i just wrote......But i know how these forums are.........
My main question is..........or should i say what i would like to find.......Is there a ready to fly electric model plane that comes with a cheapie 2.4GHz transmitter that is worth buying that will fly half way decent.I'm thinking in the $200.00 to $250.00 dollar range.This is where i would like to start if there is one,and if i like them then i would move up the ladder so to speak......
Hope i'm in the right area for electrics.....???
