Howdy,

 This is a link to my blog at www.rcgroups.com with suggestions on how to get started in radio control.

 I love radio control as a hobby and highly encourage you to look seriously at flying with us.  My wife even thinks it is a good hobby.  She says it is a lot cheaper than therapy!

People with intrest in radio control airplanes have many questions but often don't want to bother some one to get all of the answers.  For the last 2 years I have been writing down the questions new flyers ask.  In this blog I have tried to answer many of the basic questions that we hear over and over.  Hopefully this link will give you enough information that you will be able to get a basic knowledge so you can make decisions with confidence. 

The first entry on the list is a shopping list that has links to sources where you can purchase the supplies, but even more important is you can see pictures so you know what it looks like and about how much it costs.  

 There are many equipment options.  I have tried to find the least expensive way to get started with good equipment, good flying trainers and high performance planes that won't be quickly outdated. 

Many of the items are available at local retailers and don't have to be purchased on line but at least you will have some advice on what to look for.

Please give feedback and ask questions.  We hope to see you flying.
