I just recently started flying. There was an RC plane air show and I went to it. One guy I was talking to had 5 or 4 different planes. He recommended the RTF Champ. One day after flying it, I fell in love.

Unknown User says:

The problem is that I already bought a big 4 channel RC plane with those confusing controllers like 8 switches

Mike Hale says:

I love that plane, the Apprentice is very appealing, one problem, the radio, you must use proprietary radio to get SAFE! CARE TO COMMENT!

AKo. says:

which one of these planes can carry a gopro plz ?

OMVD media says:

I have the old apprentice without safe, still can’t stall enough to crash lol. First plane too.

joespeed1952 says:

What transmitter would you guys recommend for a first time RC flyer? I want something a little more durable than the cheap plastic feel of the X-mitter I got with the Ominus drone. Something very inexpensive, but that does the job and works with multiple aircraft, if I would like to branch out. I was looking for something under $100.
