Features To Look For In The Best Model Airplane For Beginners

by Cathy Vasquez

If you have a keen interest in aircraft and love the idea of flying your own remotely, model airplanes can be a great investment. However, when you are just getting started in the model airplane hobby, it is critical that you pick the best possible planes for your skill level. Take a look at a few important features to look for in the best possible model airplane as a beginner. 

Does the model airplane include everything you need to get started?

make sure the plane you choose has everything you need to get started, including a transmitter, receiver, and battery. It is far easier to get an all-in-one kit when you are just getting started than to have to do research and figure out which parts and components will work with other parts and components. 

How durable is the airplane's construction?

Look for a durable foam construction that is lightweight and resistant to impact. As a novice flyer, you are bound to have a few crashes and mishaps. Therefore, it will be important to have a plane that can hold up during your initial flights. 

What is the wingspan of the model airplane?

When it comes to model planes, in general, a larger wingspan makes for a more beginner-friendly flight. Larger wingspans usually provide more stability during the flight. For example, a model airplane often has a wingspan of several feet, which makes it glide easier and stay stable as the plane maneuvers through the air. Plus, the plane can recover quickly if you make jerky movements so you can avoid crashes. 

How good are the electronic features of the model airplane?

Consider all the electric features of the model airplane, such as: 

  • The transmitter - Look for a good transmitter on the plane so signal disruptions do not interfere with your flight inputs 
  • The receiver - Look for the best receiver so you get a good signal between the receiver and transmitter 
  • The battery - Pick a better battery that will support lengthy flights as you are just learning and may be spending more time in the air 

Is the model airplane beginner-friendly?

Some model planes are specifically advertised as being beginner-friendly. These are always a safe starting point for a beginner because they often boast many of the aforementioned features. Further, these planes are typically less costly and a good starting-point investment.
