Hi Yedida
you can start with rubber powered models and save you pennies and slowly you will get there,,,there are not many modelers who will give there gear away as we can all use the stuff again and again until we bust it....also the giver also has to pay the postage and this will the incur cost and we don't like cost....I wish you all success in your endeavors ....keep flying

Welcome to the forum Yedidya.
Your situation is not out of the ordinary for a person of your age.
I will give you one for having the קאַהונאַס to post your request.
I can only offer the same advise, to work and save. It will be way more rewarding to you.

The best thing you can do is to get a plane together and start flying. Is there a club anywhere near you? Once you are flying your plane you will likely find other people to fly with. Keep active on the forums and look for good deals especially locally to maximize your limited budget. If you are scratch building, try to build similar size planes so that you can swap components after crashes or if you get bored with a plane. One of my favorite planes was sitting in front of a guys truck one morning with a sign that said "free" on it.
It took some work to get it fixed but like I said, it's now one of my favorite planes :)

Yediya, I've been 14 too with almost no money, but when hobby stuff cost at least ten times as much as now, so I know how frustrating it can be. Postage is usually what hurts nowadays, so here's three tips (that you've perhaps figured out yourself =):

1. Look for like-minded generous people in your close vicinity. Maybe they'll donate something if you ask kindly?
2. I guess postage within Israel is not that expensive? Posted donations are more plausible then.
3. Should you find a few RC interested friends close by, do a combined order from HK or similar to save on postage (and any eventual customs fees).

Good luck!

One of your countrymen just posted a nice f-22 vid.
My guess is that there are most likely people that fly in your area.
Sometimes they may have stuff they are willing to get rid of.
I have three planes that the original owners got tired of fixing and just gave to me and my boys.
Of course we have also done the same for them...
Whether or not they choose to give you free stuff, it's good to have people to fly with and share information.
