    How to get started and how to fly a rc plane?
    …Flying RC Airplanes affords you the chance of experiencing that thrill with your feet planted on the
    ground steadily…Before you try to fly a rc plane,I suggest you should get some basic knowledge first,such as basic parts of the airplane,how does it work?…The best way of getting started in RC Planes is to visit
    a local library and bookstore or newstand,browse through the model airplane magazines,usually
    those magazines give you a lot of updated information about what’s happening in the RC world,also give you great tip on how to getting started in RC Planes.the next step,you should find the model that fit you,Find out the locations of local flying club in your area so that you will have a place to socialize with other modelers and to fly your rc plane.Models and real airplanes are both depend on control surfaces to maneuver and fly,the basics being the elevators,
    ailerons and rudder.Some of the more sophisticated ones
    might have spoilers and flaps and leading edge wing flaps.after you get some knowledge on how does the Elevators,Ailerons,Rudder,Aerodynamics,Lift,Thrust,
    Drag work,then you are ready to get started in rc plane.I suggest beginners should start with electric airplanes that are ready to fly(RTF) or almost ready to fly(ARF).However,if you want to start out with a nitro powered RC plane,then you must to get at least the following accessories:
    1. A field accessory pack—Consists of tote box,Manual fuel pump,extra glow plugs,4 way glow plug wrench,glow plug igniter /driver with charger and a chicken/starting stick(HAN STAR)
    2. Standard fuel tubing(DUB 222)
    3. Recoil fuel tubing(HAB 151)
    4. Fuel bottle cap fittings(DUB 192)
    5. Fuel line filter(DUB 162)
    6. Twelve size”AA” batteries(FUG 4)
    7. Nitro airplane fuel(POW 00037)
    8. After run oil(PRA 7140)
    also,Flight Simulator such as RealFlight’s G 2 Flight Simulator w/Interlink Mode 2,Reflex XTR ‘Next To Reality’ Flight Simulator or Great Planes RealFlight G3 R/C Flight Simulator are close enough to the real one to teach you a lot.
    Compare to Flight Simulator,use an instructor is still the best way,especially with a nitro powered model plane,because an instructor will help you learn faster and develop more confidence in your ability generally.
    Look for an instructor that has a trainer system,
    connect it with a compatible radio,and fly with the safety of having the instructor back you up,this is very important because it helps minimize the risk of damaging your model plane and more secure …

    RC plane camera records beautiful. Videos are stored on the internal 2GB memory which allows you to save up to 1.5 hours of video on a single charge. Lightweight RC plane camera comes with an easy to install camera mount that attaches to any RC flyer or kite in less than 2 minutes. RC plane camera is about half the cost of similar branded cameras and the quality is just as good, and in many cases much better
