Default WTB: R/C Planes

Spur of the moment thing this, does anyone here have any sort of realistic R/C planes up for sale? I used to be into this kind of thing but never really had the money for it, although saying that I still don't have the money now.

Im looking for a smallish realistic propeller driven plane, preferably electric as I have virtually no experiance in this. Budget would be between 50 - 75.

Hobbycraft do a nice Piper Cub but it costs around 120 which to be honest I would not like to crash land.

I was thinking in getting an XPV 2.0, looks like a toy, but belive me, I once saw one and it rocks lol, it cracked against everything there was on that place and nothing happened to it, plus this idea of the wheels works great.



The old version is on dealextreme for 60$, I heard the new version is sold in toys're'us for 50$

yours,
Albert

Yeah, thats the exact thing I am avoiding. It looks rediculous!

I would much rather a realistic plane, I know there are ones like Cessna 152s, Piper Cubs etc. on ebay but they are out of my price range.

For that budget you can't really get anything new much better that something
like this....

BRONCO OV-10A RADIO CONTROL R/C RTF RC GLIDER PLANE NEW on eBay.ca (item 260334855360 end time 16-Jul-09 21:29:47 EDT)

For a much better quality inexpensive electric 3CH R/C plane...
I suggest this one (sometimes they sell refurbished for a lot less)...
I have 2 of these...

Not bad but im not keen on the design though, they fall into the odd looking fake plane design category for me.

So far I have only managed to find a Piper Cub for 55 on ebay which is realistic but from what I can see is made entiraly from plastic... Now considering I have 0 experience in R/C planes im not sure how that would survive a crash landing.

Edit:
Just came across this one.

If you have never flown an R/C plane might I suggest Real Flight simulator. It will save you a ton of money fixing and buying new planes if you are a beginner. I bought this when I wanted a R/C helicopter and it so good I never got the helicopter.

Thing is, for the money I would need to pay for that I could buy a plane.

The one I posted above comes with a spare prop but thats the least of my worries, spare wings would be more appropriate...

I have used flight simulators for years now so I know how real aircraft fly and think I get ths jist of how an R/C plane would fly. I am assuming it would be the same as a real aircraft just with a lot more sensitive controls?

True but remember with R/C you are not in the cockpit. Everything is in reverse when your plane is flying towards you. It is expensive but the simulator is as real as it gets and will help you fly your plane safely. You can set the wind speed and direction and whether something fails on your plane so you can bring it in safely without damage. Even without the Sim you are going to have fun, it is a great hobby, just trying to save you some money.

Realistic scale planes are usually 4ch because they have the addition of ailerons. some are even more complex and include retractable landing gear and/or flaps. these are also very expensive, but match the real plane almost exactly. Beginner planes usually start with 3 channels, throttle, rudder, and elevators. You could try a sailplane, some models have a prop to help you climb, and look fairly realistic. They also fly fairly slowly because of the large wingspan. These are also 3 channel for the most part. It would be a good idea to get some experience before you actually fly an RC plane, because as k1kb0t mentioned, the controls are different depending on your perspective

I must agree with FlightLevel350... get a less expensive 3 channel Trainer for your first
plane.. It will be a LOT less expensive in the long run... remember a slower flying plane
gives you a lot more time to react...

I've been flying R/C for over 20 years and i still enjoy a slower glider to some speed demon plane...
but that's just me...
