New to everything RC. Iv'e had a wish since I was a nipper to get involved in flying RC aeroplanes but never been able to afford one until now. Iv'e had a look around the forum and you seem to be a helpful lot. So I hope you don't mind me picking brains from time to time.

That's pretty much it Peter. Ask ten different modelers, get 10 different answers. The solution can lie with seeking out a local club and looking carefully at what goes on there. To cite an example, if you were considering a particular popular model or radio, you'd almost certainly find several users of it at a club. You'd then need to pick a few brains too find out why it's so popular. This type of approach can save much strife, as it avoids buying the wrong or unsuitable items. It is after all much cheaper to learn from the mistakes of others.............

Which perhaps adds a little more weight to the * seek out your local club and see what they do* approach. The forum is fine once you've established what's what ( if you get my drift) but actually being on a club field and picking the brains of those actually there is the real deal........

Hi Will.

Try to visit a few clubs to see which suits you. They can differ in character and in ways of working, so you might feel more comfortable with some than others. It's a great hobby, never too late to start and you can get involved to whatever level you feel comfortable with, but don't try to do everything at once, or spend a small fortune on goodies, only to risk 'burn-out'. Keep it simple, get the basics right and progress from there.

Good luck and enjoy it.yes

Try this thread and you will find a link to all Sonny Monks' posts. You will find his posts also lack capital letters which makes them harder to read!

Looking good Will.....you're well on the way now....enjoy your new Hobby & don't forget the only stupid question is the one you don't ask. wink 2

@paul coleman 1....Hi Paul, welcome to the forum. It might be an idea to start your own thread rather than hijack another newcomers thread. Tell us a bit about yourself, about the clubs around the Leeds area. It might make it easier for Sonny Monks to find you too.....thumbs up
