Beginner R/C Airplanes

Remote control airplanes from HobbyZone are geared for the starter flyer and novice. There is no better place to start your hobby. Do the research, you will find that HobbyZone supplies the best beginner remote control airplanes in the business. HobbyZone's airplanes are designed with flyability, strength and cost in mind.

HobbyZone has recognized the most common mistake by first time R/C pilots and rectified it through anti crash technology (A.C.T.). With this technology, the airplane will correct itself if it senses you are about to crash headlong into the ground. HobbyZone's lightweight durable remote control airplanes have a large wing area for maximum lift. Even if you have an engine fail, you should be able to glide in for a smooth landing.

A.C.T. Anti Crash Technology

While it is not possible yet to have a remote control airplane that will not crash, HobbyZone's anti crash technology eliminates the most common mistake a beginner makes. This is during a nosedive and compensating too much which leads into a straight down head on crash into the ground. A.C.T. senses when you are in a nosedive and knows how close you are to the ground. It will over control of the aircraft just long enough to level out your wings. This feature can be turned off as you become a more capable remote control airplane flyer.

Can I Fly Out of Range?

It is possible to fly out of range of your transmitters signal, however it is very unlikely. The range on all HobbyZone R/C airplanes is more than sufficient. In fact, the plane will barely be visible before you lose communication. If that does happen, the motor shuts off and it will come down, hopefully in a glide pattern. This should not be a major concern for you, just keep the remote control airplane in sight, and you will be fine.

What are Channels?

When purchasing an R/C airplane, there will be a reference to how many channels the R/C aircraft has. The less channels, the more it is geared to the beginner. A 2 channel R/C airplane enables you to control the steering and throttle. Throttling up makes the plane fly higher and faster, throttling down makes the plane descend. A 3 channel R/C airplane adds the capability of controlling the elevator which enables you to go up or down without relying soleley on the throttle. A 4 channel R/C airplane contains all the controls as a 3 channel airplane but adds aileron control. This gives you the ability to tilt the main wings up and down.

Channel 1 = Rudder - Steering
Channel 2 = Throttle - Power and Altitiude
Channel 3 = Elevator - Up and Down
Channel 4 = Ailerons - Control the Banking Ability
