Many of us think electric is the way to go today.
No fuel or cleanup and fuel is so expensive now.
With electric you can fly when gas cannot in many areas with reduced noise too.
Look at the stickies here and ask away. Electric is a whole new world but it's not that hard to learn.
2.4 GHz is the way to go today and most use either Spectrum or Futaba and Li Poly batteries are light and allow you to put out a lot of power in the light planes most of us fly.
If you are interested, I just picked up a Mini Telemaster ARF for around $75. And if you look under parts you will also find the pre covered wing with ailerons for another $30 or so so that makes a pretty good deal to start out again.
Welcome back, I just got back into this again myself.
