Newbie looking to get started

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi there. I would like to learn how to fly this summer. I come from a background of racing rc cars. By the start of the flying season I plan to have a plane (rtf or start building the next couple weeks, if there's still time). I know I need a radio, field box, engine, starter and some fuel, is there anything else I'm missing?

I also know that I need to join a club, is there any around Hamilton? And I know I need maac insurance, just wondering how I go about all this?

In other words, I would like to know how and what I need to join this side of the rc hobby.

Hi ModularGT. Flying Tigers RC club is always open to new members and is a good club to join.

As far as your aircraft and equipment needs are concerned ,I live on the mountain in Stoney Creek and if you have any questions just send me a pm or if you live close I could check things out for you.
