A few words of advice...

Congrats on the purchase of your new plane! I remember how i felt when i got m first plane. I was 13 years old and I had the world by the tail! (boy was I ever wrong! )

Find the local flying club and go talk to them. They will be more than willing to help you out. (as they have gone through the exact same experience as yourself) It is essential that you get help from experienced pilots as many rc pilots will tell you how many planes they wrote off before they decided to seek help. I would bet everything I own that you will ruin your plane if you try flying it with no help. Trust me on this one...

How long is it going to take you

Hey Alpha you must have that sim wore out by now, any date for first flight yet.

If you plan to fly while I am gone you will need to get the fuel and gear.


Hey where did that lamp pole come from

Hey Alpha,

I convieniently have several weeks off of work and have erecently taught my father to fly this summer. He went from never having touched a transmitter to solo in half a season. If you are REALLY desperate for an instructor I would be happy to come and teach you to fly. I'm not sure what airfare would cost you to get me there and I don't eat much...lol...but I do need a long bed as I am 6'6" tall so that would be a consideration. If Nextstar pilot is not around I also could bring my own starting gear and fuel would be included of course.

Just kidding... unless you want me too...lol.

But seriously you should get help from a qualified R\C pilot to teach you to fly. It will save you money and alot of frustration and time. The simulators do help but they are not a replacement for actual instruction.

Good luck and enjoy this wonderfully pleasant hobby.
