To Panther and Don: thanks for the welcome! I'm sure I'll be learning so much here! And here is a salute to our veterans of all conflicts on Memorial Day; may their sacrifices be not in vain but always honored in our thoughts.

Welcome to Wattflyer, Ruprecht.C. The slow park flyers are the very best way to get started. They give you time to make corrections before they hit the ground. Remember to fly "three mistakes high" meaning be sure to give yourself enough altitude to make those corrections.


There are several WWI biplanes that are good flyers, just stay away from the triplanes for a bit. They can be tricky to fly.


Good flying, Ruprecht.C

Thanks also to mclarkson and Rabbitcreekok too! Your advice on park flyers is well taken; I have two bipes waiting for me as my grandson and I work with a couple of park flyers. Starting at altitude is always a good suggestion, as I learned using Flight Simulator programs on my computer ...crashed many times and ended up at the training field at Meigs Field in Chicago! Thanks again!

Welcome to WF. You will find the group friendly and helpful.

Be sure to take a look at the sticky threads at the top of the beginner section. Some of them appear to be old but the info is still relevant and you can post questions and comments. The answers help to keep the info current.

Hi AEAJR,
Thanks for the reminder - I am going thru the transmitter section things have changed in the past decade: unfamiliar with BNF, PNF and such. I have a few older Futaba radios with crystals, but they still work. It looks like the new ones, like Spectrum, can do everything except tie your shoes! When I decide to get some more quality aircraft, I'll be looking at these newer rigs. thanks again....bob.c

Glad to be of help. If you don't know where else to post questions, start a new discussion in the beginner section.

Hello, aaindthu and welcome to Wattflyer. Great choice in power. Electric keeps me from having to find someplace to buy that wet fuel. I have electricity all over my house.

Rabbitcreekok/Jim, I do not know how difficult it is to find that wet fuel.. because as I said... i never got the opportunity to try gas/nitro...
electric is more affordable and available i think and less dangerous too i guess...

so i agree with you and thank you for your welcome..

and check out my homemade foamie and let me know what you think.... here's the link to my thread

Browsed the forum here off and on for quite a while, mostly by finding old threads from google searches. Never posted till now though. I'm mostly an electric guy. Do a lot of foamboard builds of all shapes and sizes, and have started modeling 3D printed planes as well.
