First RC Plane? Answered

Hey guys I was wondering if anyone of you could help me select which project I should make (my first RC plane)
Here are the requirements:-

1. Must be easy.
2. Its body should be DIY and made of wood
3. It should be under $100
4. The instructions should be really clear

Sorry I didnt have time to make a well written question neither did I have time to correct my grammar

Without any shadow of doubt go to

http://www.flitetest.com/articles#/textSearch=Seri...

This is about the best RC site at present with LOTS of FREE planes you can build using easily available materials and fast building techniques.

You WILL crash quite a lot at first so cheap models will be a real bonus. Nothing is worse than crashing a £50 model you only got to fly once.

You can also look here

for my starter guide.

good luck It's a great hobby.

Take care to fly responsibly - have permission to use the land or keep well away from civilization.

Make sure people come well before your model, the model can be replaced!.

Find your nearest hobby store and talk to them personally. Plenty of hobby forums and sites out there specializing in RC Aircraft as well who could be more on target with the information your looking for. It's certainly a hobby with a large community, one you'll want to be active in and can learn alot from.
