RC Flying Guide - How to fly radio controlled model airplanes?
For most RC flying hobbyists, the beauty of their planes lies in its unique structure and design. For a good RC pilot instead, the beauty of a plane lies in what he/she can do with that particular RC plane project. The latter approach is the same for both radio controlled aircraft model pilots and pilots of a bigger aircraft, so the difference between a real aircraft and RC airplane is just the size of the aircraft and the fact that RC pilots remain on the ground, but both these things have minimal impact on the performance of a specific project.
The result is that RC model plane flying enthusiasts are able to build and fly aircrafts that range from Wright brother's initial aircraft to sophisticated space shuttle-type airplanes. In this article, I would give you some general information on how to build and fly RC planes at a much faster pace keeping in mind the safety of your costly plane.
I have written two articles some days back on how to build your own radio controlled model planes. Here you go:

How to start practicing RC flying hobby?
The first and most important thing for any hobbyist is to get more and more information about the hobby that he/she is going to start practicing in. There are many magazines, videotapes, and books in different languages including English on aeromodeling. For beginners into RC flying, I would suggest first to fly your RC plane using one of the flight simulator software for RC models, which can be easily downloaded from the net or one can buy and order online. RC flying practice software are mostly free to use and include a variety of RC models but for more advanced software, it is highly advisable to buy them online like from amazon or from a RC hobby shop.
Why and how to hire a RC flying instructor?
If you have enough spare money, you can also hire an RC airplane-flying instructor. With an RC instructor, you will learn faster and safely than you could do testing yourself alone. If the remote control of your RC instructor only has a cable system, you can purchase a radio-compatible connection for the RC instructor and fly with much less risk for your plane model. You can find a RC flying instructor easily by contacting with your nearby hobby store or you can also participate in local RC online forums and communities and ask them for any trusted and experienced flying instructor available in your area for teaching you how to fly your model aircraft. With their help, you will be able to definitely find a good instructor who will guide you to learn the basics of RC flying.
So these were some basic things, which can help you in flying your first RC plane. I will publish more articles on RC flying planes in the upcoming days.
Up until then, good luck for the takeoff and flight of your RC planes.
