Default Hovering a huge plane in the local park

Dudes I am so about to get into rc.
I was at the Shakespeare Festival Park in Montgomery Saturday and met this guy hovering a 100cc plane just about the coolest thing I have ever seen.
He said I should go to RC Universe for information.
Where can I buy this plane in the photo?
If you could post me some links it would help a lot.
They had planes helicopters’ cars and boats going all at the same time.
And the best thing of all it’s in a public park the wife and kid can play while I fly.
Nice people too they say weather permitting its on every weekend.

The 100cc class of planes is cool without a doubt, but you can't learn to fly with one.

You need to walk before you can run and this plane, although not so pretty, WILL teach you to fly. You will need to find a instructor pilot to teach you as well.

If you get a little sticker shock on that trainer, wait till you see the price tag on a 100cc plane like you saw[sm=eek.gif]. You will probably be looking somewhere in the neigborhood of $1,500+ dollars

What you have done is similar to someone who has never seen a car before and then went to the Indianapolis 500 and said, "I want one of those!"

You will need to spend many years and many dollars before you reach the level of that type of flying.

Get yourself a Flight Simulator for your computer and start there. You can crash many planes without it costing you a fortune.

If you want to see another good time, Why dont you make a little trip up to Lineville Alabama this weekend. There will be lots of those big 50 to 100 cc planes doing nothing but 3d. Its actually going to neat because the way their feild is setup, they have a huge hollow that slopes down just beyond the edge of their runway. They have all figured out this trick where they can hover their big planes down in the hollow where they go almost completely out of sight except for maybe their spinners showing. Its called Huckin in the Hollow. I have heard some people do knife edge fly bys so lo that only one wingtip is showing.

$1500.00??? Damn thats cheap. Dont even THINK about warbirds!!!! Jets are a whole different animal, around $8000.00 for an average nonscale jet.

Yep, you'll need alot of plusses at the end. I have right at $3,500.00 in mine...

You'll need:

The ARF
The Engine
Servos
Batteries
Transmitter
Recievers

Those are just the things that come to mind. There's a bunch of other stuff I'm forgetting at the moment, plus you'll need the expertise to put it all together and set it up. Ive not been flying long, just a bit over two years, and I still scare myself sometimes...

I think "fishing" should be spelled with a "ph" in this instance.

Good choice, with patience and plenty of stick time, you'll be ready to increase the wow factor in no time. Have fun, and get plenty of advice/help with your setup and the all-to-important first flight.[8D]

That's a good choice to play with for awhile. Get a sim, practice every night. Find someone at your field who's good on the buddy box & enjoy!

"For all you fishing/ fisting guys I like girls sorry."

What the hell was that for? ha sorry dude but nobody on these forums will talk like that and you took it way out of context..... good luck on you're trainer, I started on a Nexstar and have no complaints... except throw out all the extra bells and whistles... ("speed brakes", DEFF the flight correction bullcrap, the airfoils are okay.. but you'll like it more when you take them off"
