http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/towa21.html This RTF kit includes 4 channel radio and a .46 engine. I have never owned or flown a gas powered rc airplane. I have a 36''wingspan electric biplane that I've got pretty good at flying and am ready to try a gas powered. Rather than buying a Futaba or JR 4 or 6 channel radio, then purchasing engines and airplane kits separately. I was looking for some advice from some experienced rc airplane hobbyist'. I can purchase this RTF http://www.towerhobbies.com/products/towa21.html for $242.97 (with a $25.00 off promo code) Do you think this is a good buy for a first time trainer plane? The other thing is that I really enjoy the hobby and see my self enjoying it for years to come. Do you think I would be better off by going ahead and purchasing a hi-quality FM TX radio and starting out with a .46 engine and purchasing an airplane kit. Or, would it be better to purchase the RTF mentioned above for only $249.97 and learn more about engines, servos and radios before purchasing a good radio, etc..? Thanks for your time and responses.
