Welcome to the hobby, and enjoy the planes. Full scale pilots have an advantage at understanding aerodynamics but the whole notion of perspective can be a major downer. For sure find other modellers to assist and test fly your planes. Enjoy the camaraderie of a club and the reassuring voice of an instructor saying "YOUR OTHER RIGHT" as the plane comes at you.....

voice of experience....I promise

Dreaming of next summer.....

Welcome to the great hobby!! Suprisingly there are no full scale pilots at our field I don't think.

I too enjoy tinkering with models, but I like building them better. I don't like setting up arfs, its so boring! At that point I just want to fly..

Joining a club is well worth it, but if you insist on doing it on you own, there are 2 things I would get. A sim, and a foam parkflief. Practice on both, then step up to the alpha. Also, make sure you find a big field. A normal local park is not nearly big enough for a normal sized trainer.
