We all want to fly. We all want to know how to fly. However, becoming a pilot may prove to be just too expensive for most, and not to mention, too risky as well. The next best thing for them would be to go and get remote control airplanes. Now a lot of people may think that remote control planes are just toys for kids, but what they don’t know is that a lot of adults have been taken by the hobby rolling code transmitter of flying and collecting them. Remote control airplanes can be great fun especially when you have mastered your toy and could do amazing tricks on air.

I have seen a lot of adult men and women standing in open fields and just flying their airplanes around. This is a great way to get started in flying. If you do not want to take lessons just yet, go and get yourself a remote control plane and learn to fly easily!

There are two types of remote controlled planes. They would be the internal combustion and the electric powered airplanes. The internal combustion planes are those that run by gasoline. They are older as compared to those electrically powered. You can easily spot them because they have a tail of smoke following them. But since people are becoming more and more environmentally aware, electronic airplanes have been developed. They are slowly taking over the remote controlled plane field, but there are still a few internal combustion planes left. Some of the owners of these ICs, or internal combustion planes, would rather opt to keep their planes in storage or for display purposes rather than play with them. These kinds of toy planes make for great collectibles. Electronic planes are also cheaper and easier to maneuver than internal combustion planes.

If you are looking for a remote controlled plane of your own, most hobby shops and department stores carry them, and if they don’t you can always check online. Price should be one of the factors you must consider before purchasing your new toy. However, over and above the price, you should also bear in mind the quality of the product. The reason why some products are more expensive than others is that they are made from higher quality materials as compared to those made from inexpensive stuff.

Flying toy airplanes is a great hobby that would not only widen your social circle, but would also create a great bonding time for you and your little kid. They would also learn about responsibility since this kind of toy requires careful handling. You would not want your very expensive toy to be broke, would you?


Flying a remote control airplane can be very addictive.
