Radio Controlled Aircraft

Radio Controlled Aircraft

Radio controlled planes can collect enough bills when you consider all the different things you should buy to enjoy a hobby. You have to buy the model of the aircraft itself, as well as all the radio and motor equipment to stay on in the air. Then you have to buy gasoline, or pay for electricity to charge the battery. All in all it can be a very expensive undertaking. After spending all this money, nothing is worse than seeing your investment accidents to the ground and erupting into a big fireball (well, maybe not a fireball, but you can expect all your components to be destroyed beyond any working circumstances). So when you fly a plane for the first time, you have to be very careful in ensuring that you do not damage the aircraft and consequently spend your money.
The most important part is choosing the day and place carefully. On an ideal day, there is a very clean sky, no wind. Hopefully it’s also warm, but if not, it will not harm your outing. You have to go to a place that offers some sort of good take-off point. The sidewalks and paths are perfect for this. You should also try to look for low areas in the home, trees, and should not have many people.

First, you need to check all your equipment. Even if you are a professional in handling radio controlled airplanes, nothing can save you from the wrong equipment. Check and double check everything before you send the plane up. Be sure to pay particular attention to the landing gear. Make sure it is safe, and it will be able to withstand the impact force when the plane touches the ground once you are done flying. Also check all connections between motor and fuel supply or battery. Test all radio equipment to ensure that every movement is interpreted by the aircraft. Hold on to your hand when you or your friend try all the levers and knobs.

Set your aircraft on a surface that will act as a good runway. If you are in the park with a sidewalk, find a large sidewalk that will give plenty of room for your plane to glide, accumulate speed, and take off. Make sure no one is walking down the street. Wake up to speed, and if all goes well, you should lift it smoothly in the air. Hopefully you will read the manual that accompanies your plane. Every radio controller is a little different, so I can not give detailed instructions about that flight aspect. You should read your manual to find out how to do it well. Radio Controlled Aircraft

After the flight you need to check the equipment again. If in good condition at the start of the flight and the flight passes without a hitch, chances are no new problems are suddenly appearing. However, you should always investigate first, and save yourself some sadness in the future. If you see something wrong, you can just get on the plane and take care of it, rather than wait until you notice it as you come out again to fly.

Follow all these procedures, along with local laws or regulations that may affect your flying session. Flying is a fun hobby, and if you can follow all the guidelines I have given, as well as other factors that may affect you personally, you will find it a very fun and worthy hobby.
