The plane comes with a stabilizer. The flight time on this plane is about 5 min. Very satisfied with the purchase, and I will definitely buy again.
See All Buying Options. This helicopter is great. My son loves it and it is easy to fly. My nephews really like these trucks. They have great speed and long range. Headlights and tail lights work well. Very durable too, as they have been jumping their trucks off of ramps. A little too speedy for indoor play though. I got this for my quadcopter.
I was very excited about getting to fly it but it took me another week after getting it to be able to fly. I had to bind it and figure it out by myself since the company doesn't send a manual with the product. Awesome plane!!! I make the guys at the flying field jealous of how long it's in the air. I've purchased five 3. But lil time and patients. Great plane for the price!!! Sims Maryland. I purchased this as a gift for my 7 year old niece.The term gas is often a generic one used to cover all types of IC internal combustion power, but this page mainly refers to the most popular kind - glow plug or 'nitro' powered planes.
If you're in North America, the word gas commonly refers to gasoline petrolso my apologies in advance for any confusion.
But with that said, IC airplane characteristics are all very similar, regardless of the exact fuel type and where you are in the world!
Glowglow plug and nitro are just different names for exactly the same power type, and before electric power became mainstream they made up the majority of planes found at your average rc airplane club field.
Although perhaps not so much the majority now, glow plug powered airplanes do tend to be more restricted to club sites simply because they aren't as suitable for flying in public places such as parks, due to noise issues. Petrol gasoline powered rc planes aren't as common as glow powered ones, but in recent times rc engine manufacturers have been concentrating their efforts on producing more, and smaller, petrol engines and they are becoming more popular.
The main advantage of petrol over glow is that of fuel cost, with petrol being so much cheaper. A petrol engine also burns cleaner, whereas glow fuel leaves a very oily residue. A disadvantage with petrol is that of smell - we all know how strong it is, and your rc airplane storage hanger and car can become very fumy with the slightest spillage. For the beginner, buying and flying a gas powered rc airplane is easier than it ever has been in the past, with thanks going to the modern day RTF Ready To Fly glow plug trainers such as the popular Alpha Trainer DSM2 and the NexStar Select 46both shown below:.
Both these planes, although no longer manufactured, proved themselves to be two very popular glow trainer planes, for beginners either looking to step up from an electric rc airplane or to fly IC from scratch. Sold fully RTF, no construction work is needed on these airplanes, just some basic final assembly. Of course, there are other choices available such as the Great Planes Avistarshown below, but the NexStar Select and Alpha Trainer are worthy of a mention simply because these were two of the first mass-produced RTF gas trainers for the beginner.
The Avistar RTF is another great example and proving to be equally as popular. Such rc planes like these are letting more and more people take to the skies with a proper multi-channel glow plug powered model, and this kind of plane is perfect as an introduction to IC radio control flying, either from scratch or as a natural progression from electric rc flying. Ready To Fly glow plug trainer airplanes like the two shown above can be assembled in very little time, and that's a great incentive for anyone looking to start flying gas rc airplanes with the minimum amount of fuss.
But having said that, instruction manuals do need to be read, understood and followed thoroughly and the completed airplane should always be checked over by a competent modeller prior to flight. The term RTF means that the plane has already been built and has everything it needs to fly - it doesn't necessarily mean that it's going to fly out the box without some adjustments having to be made!
If you intend joining a local rc plane club and getting one-to-one instruction then your instructor will should The two trainer planes shown above are non-scale in that they are fictitious designs, but maybe you like the idea of flying scale rc airplanes? A scale model is one that has been modelled from a real-life plane. The choice of scale RTF glow plug powered airplanes isn't nearly as large as non-scale, but they are available. The variety of scale ARF airplanes available these days is huge, although quality between manufacturers does vary so do your research first.
Popular scale subjects for rc pilots include P MustangsSpitfires and other warbirds, Piper CubsCessnas and vintage planes to name but a few. The actual list is seemingly endless, in fact I doubt there's a full size plane in the world that hasn't been reproduced in radio control form at one time or another! An rc Piper Cub shown above makes a great scale trainer and is stable and forgiving, and relatively easy to fly.
The full-size Piper Cub is one of the most famous trainers of them all and is loved by pilots the world over - reasons why a radio control version is such a popular choice. Ideally fitted with a 4 stroke glow plug or petrol engine, a good quality Cub is always a pleasure to fly and offers a very relaxing experience.
While a Piper Cub makes an excellent scale trainer, a warbird like a P Mustang or Corsair generally doesn't and is better suited to a 2nd or 3rd model after you've gained some experience. The faster flying speeds and lower stability of rc warbirds make them more exciting in the air, but more of a handful for a beginner to the hobby.
Having said that though, one exception to that rule is Hanger 9's P S trainer Mustangshown below:. Above: A P isn't good for a first-time plane but this P S Trainer Mustang has actually been designed with beginners in mind. This particular Mustang is actually petrol powered 8cc Evolution engine and features a few neat gizmos to make it as stable as possible in the air and easy to control at slower flying speeds.
So if you don't want to take the normal option of learning to fly on a high wing trainer, this would be a very nice choice of plane. Typical rc trainer airplanes 'trainers' generally follow a basic pattern; they are of a high wing design with noticeable dihedral, which is the upward angle of each wing panel when viewed from the front of the plane.
Gas trainers typically vary around the '40' or '46' size, that's to say that they are built to take a 40 or RC RTF electric airplanes make great gifts and there are several options available for any age or skill level.

In the radio control flying hobby the abbreviation RTF stands for Ready To Fly and RTF rc airplanes offer the beginner the easiest, quickest and often cheapest option for getting started in this exhilarating pastime. Whatever they are, RTFs need no construction or installation work done to them to get them flying, only some very basic final assembly stuff such as attaching the wing to the fuselage and fixing the tailplane and landing gear in place.
Essentially, anything that makes the plane difficult to put in a box at the factory is left off for you to fit at home, otherwise the plane is complete. Incidentally, this plane has been one of the biggest selling trainers in previous years, although now discontinued and replaced by the equally popular HobbyZone Sport Cub S RTF. RTF rc airplanes have introduced thousands of people to the hobby of radio control flying, as they have become increasingly so widely available, affordable and popular.
One downside to foam RTF rc planes is that any scale appearance is slightly ruined not only by the obvious texture of the foam surface itself, but sometimes also by the numerous injection moulding marks left behind - but neither of these things are seen when the plane is flying, and in fairness manufacturers are getting better at hiding both issues! A second, and more annnoying, downside to foam is that, because of its soft nature, it is easily damaged if handled carelessly.
The completeness of electric RTF rc airplanes means that the only thing left for the buyer to get are the batteries for the transmitter, but there are manufacturers that offer a complete one box purchase that includes the batteries. ParkZone and HobbyZone are good examples.
Although now long discontinued, both of these trainers have taught many beginners to fly IC planes, especially at club level. The choice of ARF rc airplanes is much much larger for traditionally built model planes. While a true RTF rc airplane comes complete with its own radio control system, there are some brand-specific variations on the RTF theme.
The level of assembly of the airplane is the same and the variation is with the radio side of things.
With PNP planes you're free to use whatever radio gear you can lay your hands on i. Other than the radio gear, these planes are exactly the same as RTF rc airplanes - just the price tag is different. Above: the E-flite Hawker Hurricane is an example of what's been achieved in 'readiness to fly'. RTF-based rc planes are getting bigger and better all the time, as this superb example shows. With the advent of affordable RTF rc airplanes, a noticeable but almost inevitable decline was seen in the sales of traditional built-up kits.
Of course RTFs weren't solely responsible, indeed ARF rc planes played an equal and probably larger role in the traditional kit demise. This was to be expected because not everyone who wants to fly a radio control plane wants to build one, and the temptation to rush out and buy something that is ready to fly is hard to resist.
But it seems that more recently traditional building is making a comeback, with retailers noticing a marked increase in traditional balsa kit sales. The logical line of thought here is that RTF rc planes have brought a huge number of newcomers in to the hobby over the years and those newcomers aren't newcomers any more - they're now intermediate and experienced rc pilots who want to get in to the model building side of the hobby. So it's probably fair to say that while RTF and ARF planes knocked the wind out of traditional building for a while, they've actually healed the wounds that they once inflicted - a strange irony there, I think.
But good news for the hobby, whichever way you look at it! Love 'em or hate 'em, RTF rc airplanes make up a huge number of aircraft across the hobby and they're here to stay, indeed it's fair to say that they're just getting better and better as the manufacturers learn new tricks in the ongoing effort to outsell each other.
So while an RTF can be a basic foamie trainer perfect for the complete beginner, it can also be a complex multi-channel scale aircraft that the experienced rc veteran is happy to be seen with at the flying field. Whichever way you view them, RTF rc planes have done wonders for this hobby! If you're in the market for a shiny new RTF, there's a multitude to choose from - perhaps too many!
