Re: new to all this

The transmitter that comes with that plane is a low end only has one stick as the left 'stick' is just a slider for your throttle. If you enjoy this plane and want to move on, you will need a new one. I think that the plane is aimed at beginners so it should be easy to fly. It isn't going to have that much power with that set up though. Personally, I would recomend an Easystar for beginners. I've been at it for a few years and it's still one of my favourites.

Hello Butch:

Welcome to the hobby and to R/C Canada . Your question as to which first model and system to purchase is probably the single most common one ask by those folks new to the hobby; right after "how much does it cost to start out?"

This forum is a great place to gather information, share information and meet likeminded hobbyists and I'm confident that you'll receive numerous well thought out and helpful recommendations. In addition to what you might learn here, I recommend that you seek out R/C clubs in your local area. There's nothing like face to face experience to give you a worry free and painless introduction to the hobby. I'm not sure where within New Brunswick you live, but if you go to the Model Aeronautics Association of Canada (MAAC) website, you'll find a listing of all MAAC clubs, with contact numbers, in the province. Any one of these clubs will be able to help you choose a good first system and, should you choose to become a member, will more than likely offer cost free pilot training as well. Good luck!
