Default Newbie to Airplanes, Price (Specific Aircrafts) question !?

I am a newbie when it comes to the Rc airplanes. i am looking for a cheap local deal.
The possibilities that i am looking at are as follows:

option 1: Hobbico 46 nitro trainer, comes with everything. Putted together, Condition BrandNew. (PRICE = CDN$300)

option 2: alpha 9, and engine size is .46, also brand new, only taxied around guy was scared to lift it up. (PRICE =CDN$290)

As this would be my 1st plane i think these would do good job as trainers ( ? )

Take a look at the prices and please let me know if i would of get ripped off......

When you say "comes with everything", you'd have to be more specific. Does it have servos, radio, field box?

They are both good trainers.

It is easy enough to price out the exact equipment online or at a hobby shop look at the Tower Hobbies and Horizon websites to start your homework.

get an unflown aircraft especially for the first time but if you can get transmitter and everything already set up that is better

Both of those planes are good trainers.

There are tons and tons of trainers out there. Ken, the admin has a sticky at the top of the forum that you should definetly check out if your looking for a trainer.



I don't want to insult your intelligence, but if your new be sure that you know what it takes to get one of these planes in the air.

A fully functional airplane will have a transitter, receiver, receiver battery, servos, engine, and fuel tank.

Electric planes have motors and ESC's instead of engine.

An RTF comes with ready to fly, nothing else needed.

And ARF (almost ready to fly) is just the bare aircraft, no engine, no electronics. ARFs require a few hours to assembly to get them ready. Maybe 3 or 4 nights.

So when it says it has every thing it needs, be sure that it really does and that you know for sure what you're getting.

Good Luck!
