Flat out?

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Here is my question now for you guys. I've seen the huge rage in RC recently with 3D aircraft, especially foam electric planes. I'm looking into the Flat out's by Great Planes, and am wondering if anyone has formed an opinion on them. I also and wonder about the components required for these machines. I have no knowledge what so ever regarding electric aircraft. I know the Flatout's come with a motor and gear box. I am just wondering what kind of radio components are required. I know micro servos are needed, but what about the receiever and battery. My other question is about the battery, charger and ESC? What do I need and how much is it going to set me back? Thanks guys
