Hey guys! I have been interested in planes for a long while, and have been doing flight sims for a while, and was wondering. What is the best RTF, or ARF plane that would be good for me that is around $100?
Firelad..... zev is right and everyone would have there own answer to this question. I started with the Champ RTF. With the Champ there was nothing extra to buy. The plane was was completely built, motor installed and servos hooked up. A easy to handle radio with batteries, the flight battery and a battery charger. All this comes in a sturdy carring box that is used to transport your plane to the flying site. Here is a good video to check out that explanes what I attempted to say http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAOv5qcBcdM&list=PL0CB096F9A9322D9F hope this helps Let this plane be a flying confidence builder and then begin building the Nutball, Flyer and Delta. Welcome to the community.

How much would it cost to build one of these in total with all of the electronics, and a transmitter & reciever?
You could pull it off on the cheap for about $120 for everything, then it would be a buck or three per plane after that... if you keep using the same power pod. But that'll never happen lol.

nah. if you get a cheap hobbyking transmitter you can do it for $100. I made mine for $127, and that was with a turnigy 9x.
