Fun Cub has to be the ugliest plane I have ever seen haha. To be honest, I think that Radian plane is a big ripoff when compared to Firebird... What is the difference? It looks absolutely the same = wings, tail, and even front prop + front cover. But itsl ike $100 more - so what is the benefit of it over the Stratos? Second, I will be honest... this plane is so amazing... : http://www.ebay.com/itm/GWS-Big-Tige...item1e76381901
I like the body and I like that suggestion - is there a big difference when flying twin-winged aircraft? Also, these are the requirements:
REQUIRES: Speed Control: 10A or higher
Battery: 7.2-9.6V 500-750mAh NiMH
Charger: Charger capable of charging the selected flight battery
Radio: 4 Channel
Servos: 3 nano
(1-aileron 1-elevator 1-rudder)
Servo Extension 6 : for aileron
Misc. Items: building and field equipment
Sounds like this would be a very spendy airplane... how much would it cost me to get all those parts?
I disagree on the Radian. It's a sweet glider.
But, as to the Tiger Moth, I love that plane.
The last time I put one together, a few months ago, it was from HeadsUp RC and cost me $120 for everything, including upgraded wheels, battery, an extra aileron servo, and shipping:
1 Power Up 400 Slofly Outrunner Brushless Motor
@ $14.95 = $14.95
My experience says you should really start with quality equipment if you are serious about the RC hobby. These two planes are really just toys and not hobby level, they will do little more than frustrate you when they break, or after a few hours of flying when you've mastered their limited ability. The cost of good hobby quality equipment is quite high, however if you want to stay in the hobby, this equipment will last many years through many planes. Start will a good simulator, this is a great way to learn the basics, then hone your skills, then try advanced aerobatics when you are ready without risk to your plane.
