What do I need to get started RC Plane

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Good day all.

I'm just about to go full out on getting started with my 1st RC Plane.
My long term goal is to perform some FPV one day.

I got a real good deal 1/2 price on my 1st controller DX8 and also included was 2 AR 8000 and 1 TM 1000

Now with all the help from this site already the plane will be a Multiplex and I'm looking to have 20 plus minutes of flight time and those drone type model are way to much money.

Now for my question.

I assume I will need a main boar right? and if so what model that the DX8 will bind with?

What are servo?
What do my AR 8000 module do?
What size Lipo batteies will I need? excluding FPV equipment for now.

Is there some available schematic design / wire diagram drawing / shop drawings that I could include my AR 8000 modules and my TM 1000 once again that will work well with my DX8?

Thank you all for your help and comments.
