Those indulging in flying RC airplanes as a hobby or professionally are always eager to how the quickest way to learn. There are a number of good methods that a trainee can use but it is important to know that hard work and willingness to even learn by yourself will be an asset to your learning process.

Some of the methods of RC airplane training include following RC flight stimulators, club instructions and self training. With the current rise in use of computer in many walks of life, flight stimulators have gained popularity on that real plane training as well as in RC model aircrafts.

The various software set ups for RC planes training include the most realistic, the RealFlight G4. This flight simulator is real, which means that the flyer can feel like he is in a real flying environment. It is connected to a PC via a 4 channel radio control transmitter. The stimulator comes with amazing graphics which changes depending on the virtual model of the plane you chose to fly. The stimulator has very realistic sounds too that enhances the natural feeling even more.

RC plane flight stimulators are good for training since they offer you the comfort of learning from your home without a fear of crashing your expensive model plane. They are also easy to follow since they have well programmed onscreen instructions.

Following club instructions is another way of learning how to fly RC airplanes. This method is more preferred than other methods and beginners are advised to opt for this first if their learning process has to be more meaningful and fast. With this method, one can easily learn how to fly gas models instead of the electric models which lack great versatility as compared to the gas models.

What one has to do is to join a flying club near-by. You can check the list of the clubs near you and apply for membership. The main advantage of joining the flying clubs for learning is because you get to learn with people who are experienced and can tell you how to learn quickly and what to do and not to do. You also get to learn with the club planes which are meant for new members so you don't risk crashing your plane in the process of learning.

Another method you can use if you can't afford the above methods is to teach yourself. Some people may think that teaching themselves is such a difficult thing but this is not the case. The models made these days for beginners are so user friends that chances of crashing them or failure to learn are very minimal. Models such as two channel Park fliers and trainers have been made with the user in mind and so anyone can easily learn how to fly without damaging them.
