Electric, Nitro, and Gas RC Airplanes
You can buy rc planes powered by electric motors and batteries or buy models powered by 2-stroke nitro or 4-stroke gas engines. For indoor flight and park flying, buy the electric powered planes. For outdoor flight, realism and speed, shop for nitro or gas powered models.

Best Brands to Buy
Most popular models are made by DraganFlyer, Hobbico, Megatech, HobbyZone, GWS, and Nikko. There are a wide range to choose from depending on your skill level. Suggest you start with basic ready to fly (rtf) models that you can buy at department toy stores, local hobby shops, or online rc stores. Then with some flying experience, go for hobby quality kits that offer more control and accuracy during flight. Then when your have mastered this, you can buy the nitro or gas powered models that are popular with experienced modellers.
