Greetings all,

I am Edward I am from Webster, Ma. and am looking to get into R/C Electric Airplane (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=2286). Was hoping to find people near me to visit and learn from.
I do not own any equipment as of yet but am strongly concidering the following.
Radio: Futaba (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=96) 7CA or 9CA (If I can find it cheap enough)
Planes: Mountain Models Magpie, will take time to build so might also get a GWS (http://www.rcuniverse.com/buynow/keywordclick.cfm?bid_id=671) Slow Stick 300 or 400.
Not quite sure what all else I need to get going after those items.

Edward

Consider looking at some of my threads as I was in your same situation. I am getting a Slow Stick aswell. Is this your first plane? Consider gwsexperts.com, go to the Combination Packages and goto beginners. They have some good slow stick packages with everything you need except the batteries for your radio!

They start at something around $140 ... if you add another battery to your order for $10.82 you will get free shipping. :D

I'm sure everyone here will gladly help you out, as they did for me! I am getting my first plane on Monday and I will hopefully maiden her aswell! :p

Good luck!

Welcome to WF Dartel,

Check out the stickys in the beginner threads. Good info on what type of aircraft to start out with, how to do this and that and some good lessons on flying. The local club info from Deb is another good place to start. :)
You have hooked up with a good group here.

Oh, by the way, I've got family in Mass.:)

Hi, I live one town over from you. The good thing about electrics is that you can fly them just about anywhere as long as the weather conditions are favorable. My favorite place to fly is at Grafton High School. On Saturday aand Sunday mornings and some times evenings you can usually find a few people flying there. I've not been able to get there lately due to my job but the rest continue to fly.
May I sugest the GWS E-Starter as a first plane.
For a radio, get one that allows a training cord. I believe Steve (Grafton) has a conector to his HiTec and would probably be happy to help you.
