Default What is the most popular Trainer/Engine/Radio?

Whenever the question is asked here on RCU about what the "best" trainer is we always get dozens of different answers about what trainer is the "best". But the definition of "best" usually boils down to what each pilot learned to fly on. Everybody always thinks that the plane they trained on is "the best". Of course it is, it's just human nature to think that way. Anyway, I have been thinking about doing this for a while now. Let's find out exactly what is the most popular gear for learning to fly.

I'm going to put down a few rules here on how I'm going to work this.
1. I'll keep a running total of the results both here in this post at the head of the thread and also I'll post running totals as we go along.
2. Please post ONLY the plane, engine, and radio that you used to learn to fly on. Let us know if it was a Kit, ARF, or RTF plane.
3. If you used more than one type please post the plane that you consider to be your primary trainer.
4. No commentaries about any type of plane at all. Please don't put down the trainer that anybody else has used. I'm trying track what is used the most out there, not which one flies better than the other.
5. While commentaries aren't allowed, please feel free to make a short statement about your equipment. Things like "great flying plane", "still flying 10 years later", "wrapped it around a tree", etc... will make this fun.
6. Everybody gets only one vote.
7. Please post even if your equipment isn't made any longer.

On a recommendation from Marc (RCAdmin) I have tried to post a link to the items mentioned. Of course for the older items that have been discontinued there is nothing to link to

I'll get things started off here. I learned on a Tower Tranier 40 ARF, OS 40 FP engine, and an old MRC 5 channel radio.

The radio has been mothballed, but the engine and plane are still flying 10 years later

Plane: Sig LT40 from kit

I still have the radio and engine. The LT40 survived my training as well as my sons and several of his friends. I sold it when I realized how poor it flew in windy conditions.

Default RE: What is the most popular Trainer/Engine/Radio?

I learned on my Nexstar Select RTF:

Nexstar airframe
Futaba 4YF radio system
O.S. Max .46FXi engine
Real Flight G2 Nexstar edition simulator

The Nexstar got busted up at the field when an instructor was showing me how to do touch-and-goes and the radio went dead (field interference).

I still use the radio and engine in other planes. I bought the full version of G3.

Having the simulator made me a lot less pouty when it rained on "Training Night" and I'm sure the extra practice helped me.

One of these days I may repair or replace that old Nexstar fuselage and fly it again, I still have the whole thing in pieces.

G'day Ken,
I learnt to fly on a plane called an Apprentice, 6ft wing span, built from plans, that are still available through Model Airplane News, Powered by an OS 25FSR, rudder elevator & throttle & controlled by a 4 channel JR, radio, that was in 1981, & the plane is still flyable, but the motor is worn out, low compression.
When trimmed properly, it is inherently stable, ie will right itself & keep flying, if the sticks are released.

Hey guys, thanks for the feedback so far. I do apologize for not responding before this. I was in Charlotte, NC on an emergency (work emergency, had a network down) and I was posting this thread before I checked out of the hotel and headed for the airport. I then spent most of the day traveling back home, and in all honesty I was too tired last night to look at this thread. Anyway, after one day here are the results

Default RE: What is the most popular Trainer/Engine/Radio?

Plane: Hobbico NexSTAR 46 Select
Engine: O.S. Max .46FXi
Radio: Futaba 4YBF 4-channel FM radio
Type: RTF
Website: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...=LXEXK2**&P=ML
What I liked most: The package came with everything needed to fly except fuel. All of the servos, receiver, battery, engine, etc were preinstalled. All I had to do was assemble the wings, landing gear, and tail and go fly.

Comments:
The NexSTAR also carries the Success Flight Guarantee which states" "You will successfully learn how to fly with the NexSTAR or we will replace it with your choice of any Hobbico trainer of up to equal value."
The terms are as follows:
- Must fly at an AMA chartered field
- Must fly with a qualified AMA club instructor
- Must be within 60 days of purchase date
- Must provide a statement about the crash with signatures from the pilot and instructor

The Success Flight information is covered on pg 27 of manual.

Default RE: What is the most popular Trainer/Engine/Radio?

Favorite trainer plane - Goldgerg Eagle II, kit
Favorite motor - OS .70 Surpass
my vote on radio's is anything futaba/JR that's comfortable on your hand with at least 6 channels and a trainer option.
