What's Next for my son?
Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
In an effort to get my son off the computer games I bought him the "Phoenix R/C Pro Flight Simulator 2.5 Spektrum DX5e RC" for Christmas. I think my plan has worked because he would like to spend his own money and buy an actual plane that he can control with his Spektrum DX5e. Not knowing much about RC aircraft I am wondering what a good beginner aircraft would be. Most of the ones I have seen come with a controller, is there a RTF plane that would be best suited for a beginner with the DX5e?

Re: What's Next for my son?
You would be looking for a "BNF" - bind n' fly aircraft. They come ready to "bind" to the transmitter you have. There are lots that are compatable with a Spektrum transmitter depending on what he would like to start with. You can get a very simple Parkzone Ultra Micro J3 Cub, 18" w.s. with easy 3-channel controls, a Hobbyzone Supercub LP which is a bit bigger so a little more stable for outdoor flying, a slightly more advanced Parkzone T-28 Trojan which is 4-channel and has an outrunner motor and ESC (better quality than the others mentioned), or there's a Parkzone P-51 Mustang for 3 channels which is very cool. There's a bunch of fuel powered BNF's too.
Good luck and welcome to the hobby!
