Default New plane for Newb.

So I am still newb and was interested in building planes. I have heard a lot of advice from others to just get a RTF all ine one kit but where"s the fun in that. This is what I have so far

Motor:HK AP-03

Servos: HK-5329 Ultra Micro servo 1.7g, linear servos or all in one unit
http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/stor ... 075kg.html

Speed Control: JR module, all in one unit or combination

Reciever: JR module or all in one unit

All in one unit

Battery Pack: 138mAh 20c single cell

Not too sure if my spectrum DX6i will bind to the recievers, any suggestions would be much appreciated as I am yet to buy any of this stuff. I have ordered a J-3 Cub from overstock so I can beat it up while I learn to fly that will see how it goes though. Any advice would help tremendously. Thanks

Default RE: New plane for Newb.

Your links don't work for me, but the one thing missing from your list is which airplane you want to build. I can tell you that the servos and battery you have listed are for super light depron foam models. If you're talking about building a small balsa kit you'll need bigger components to go in it. The right way to go about it is to pick the air frame you want, then get the components to go in it. Trying to make someone work just because you already have it is an exercise in frustration.
