RC planes for beginners into aeromodelling
The most important thing which I would suggest for the beginners who are into aeromodelling is to check out a shop called India's Hobby Centre in New Delhi and Kolkata. The address and contact numbers are:
India's Hobby Centre (P) Ltd.
K-25, Opposite PVR Plaza, Connaught Place, New Delhi - 110001
Contact #: 011-23417185
India's Hobby Centre (P) Ltd.
1/A Russel Street
Middleton Row, Kolkata, West Bengal 700071
Contact #: 033-22261910
I think there would be similar establishments in other major cities of India like Mumbai
India Hobby Centre
377 Shop No 3,"mayur" Ground Floor
V P Road, Mumbai, 400004
Contact #: 022-23823125
These shops have a wide range of balsa wood planes, which you have to put together. These are extremely good for beginners.
Here is what beginners should start off with (in serial order):
- Static Planes: Planes, which don't fly, but will help you get the hold of sanding and assembling.
- Chuck Gliders: These are planes which fly, but with the help of a throw or a rubber band. These are small and easy to make and will help you to understand the basics of flight.
- Control Line Planes: Now these are motor-powered planes which only fly in a circular path with the help of a metallic/cloth line attached from one wing and one end is with you. These planes are fun to make and fly.
- Free Flight Gliders: These are as the name suggests planes on which you have no control over. One of the most toughest kind of planes to make, these depend on your assembly skill and aeronautical knowledge.
- R/C Planes and Helicopters: Yes, this is the final stage. You should reach this stage in a year or two depending on your interest and time. Indian models of this kind are not very reliable and pilot friendly, so I suggest you order these kinds of planes from sites like hobbico and great planes.
Yes, they'll leave your wallet thinner no doubt, but the experience would be amazing.
