IFFIE :Buying an electric plane as a starter is a good deal. A lot of them come out of the box with everything ready to go and are somewhat more abuse proof.
Liquid fuelled planes come with other added expenses.
What are you flying that you get one hour flight time on Batteries ?

Re: Electric or nitro

I do see a lot of gas and electric and less and less of nitro. I don't see it disappearing totally anytime soon, but with gas getting down to the 9-10cc range and electric so easy and pretty cheap for smaller stuff there are probably few first timers that go nitro.

Electric flying is pretty much seeing how close to a dead short you can run without setting it on fire.
