      Are RC Planes Easy to Fly?

      Generally speaking, RC planes are not difficult to operate, making flying them an excellent hobby for anyone looking to get out of the house and test their hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. 

      Whether you're a first-time flyer looking for some fun in the sky or an experienced pilot ready to take on a new challenge, you should definitely check out the RC planes on offer at Hobbyco.

      Advanced technology has made it easy for beginner fliers to take to the skies, as most RC planes come equipped with features such as stabilisation systems and remote-controlled autopilots that make learning the basics of RC plane flight a breeze. Even experienced pilots have found these features beneficial, offering unique opportunities for those looking to improve their aerial skills. 

      Can You Fly RC Planes in Wind?

      Flying RC planes on a windy day may sound like an impossible feat, but with the right precautions and techniques, it can actually be quite an enjoyable challenge. 

      The wind is great for additional lift and can provide unprecedented manoeuvrability and control. Just make sure you start out small and practice manoeuvres close to the ground, selecting an aircraft designed to operate in light winds. As your skill level increases, so too will your ability to handle windier conditions — mastering this will let you take your RC plane flying sessions to dizzying new heights.

      What Is a Good Beginner RC Plane?

      Hobbyco is passionate about providing beginners and experts alike access to RC airplanes that will help them take to the skies with skill and confidence.

      If you're a complete beginner, keep in mind that it might take you a little while to get the hang of flying an RC plane. Fortunately, there are certain planes you can invest in that will help you get your head around what's required. 

      Take the XK A200 F16B Fixed Wing 2.4GHZ RC Airplane, for example. The two-channel design makes it easy to learn the controls, while the built-in six-axis gyroscope flight self-stabilisation system ensures stability regardless of the conditions.

      The fact that the aircraft comes fully assembled means you can fly it straight out of the box, making it perfect for beginners who are super keen to take to the skies.  

      Which Is Better: an RC Drone or RC Plane?

      If you have any interest in remote-controlled flight, you're probably keen to compare and contrast RC drones and RC planes to find your ideal vehicle.

      Both RC drones and RC planes are very popular amongst flight enthusiasts. The question isn't so much which is better than which is more suitable for your specific needs.

      RC Drone

      RC drones are quickly becoming one of the most popular new gadgets for those looking for an exciting way to explore the world from a different angle. Whether you're experienced or just getting started, these remote-controlled aircraft offer something special that no other device can — real-time aerial view! 

      An RC drone comes equipped with high-resolution cameras that allow users to take stunning photographs or record mesmerising video footage at any altitude. 

      So if you're looking for a reliable and fun gadget to capture a unique perspective, check out the range of RC drones available at Hobbyco.

      RC Plane

      An RC plane may not offer the ability to capture aerial footage of the landscape below, but that doesn't mean you should rule out this type of remote-controlled aircraft.

      RC airplanes are a traditional pastime that can offer hours of entertainment. Beginners may take a little time to get a handle on the controls, but once you've got a few hours of flight under your belt, you'll be pulling off endless loops and rolls to impress family and friends.

      RC planes are perfect for those looking for an old-school hobby that involves spending time outside in the fresh air while mastering cool tricks.

      How Much Are RC Planes?

      The cost of an RC plane depends on a few factors, including its features, speed capabilities, and the control distance — or how far it can fly from its departure point.

      The RC planes currently available at Hobbyco range from $80–$125, making flying these vehicles a reasonably affordable hobby, particularly considering the hours of entertainment your new toy will provide.

      How Much Are RC Drones?

      If you're looking for an accessible way to take to the skies, consider purchasing an RC drone from Hobbyco.

      When drones were first introduced to the hobby market, the innovative nature of the technology meant they were quite expensive. In the years since then, the gadgets have become more affordable to the point where you can now purchase a quadcopter for as little as $40. 

      Hobbyco's range of RC drones varies in cost from $40–$100 and comes equipped with a range of features depending on the price point.
