A remote control plane looks the same as a real plane but with a remote with it. You need to hold that remote carefully because without that plane is nothing. You cannot control the RC planes without the remote controllers. If you are new to the plane, then there are lots of things you need to understand like the source of energy, working, things to be taken care of, etc. If you learn these things, then automatically you would get to know about the working of a plane. There are different ways in which a plane works like some works on electricity while some works on fuel. It varies from plane to plane, and as you are a beginner, then it means a basic one will be the option for you. You should not directly jump to the advanced level of the plane. If you go for the simplest one, then you will get to have only one control, and that would be way easy to understand. On the other hand, if you go for the complex one, then you would get to have more than one almost 5-6 control. It will make it tough for you to understand the working.
The controls on the remote control are the same as found in real planes. This is the fun part that would be going to attract lots of people towards it. The models are like a replica of original planes and also controls will also be the same.
What are the essential things that you should know about the plane?
There are four types of control present in the remote control plane. Throttle elevator, ailerons and rudder. These are the main things in a plane that helps in take-off and the movement of the plane. Here is the use of these kinds of controls-
- Rudder- This helps mainly in the movement of the plane. It is attached to the rear end of the plane, and it helps in the rotation of the plane. If you move the rudder to the right, then the plane will be going to turn right. If you want to make your plane to turn left, then you should turn the rudder to the left.
- Throttle- It plays an essential role in controlling the speed of the engine in the plane. The engine plays an essential role that helps in running the plane. It is to be recharged, and for that, you can use electricity or fuel. You can use different fuels for different power. If you want to use the plan to play a sport, then you should high in efficiency and power of fuel in the plane. Throttle helps in increasing or decreasing of the speed of the plane so that you can easily get to control it.
- Elevators- This controller is attached to the tail of the plane. It helps in controlling of the altitude of the plane so that it does not get crashed. Without elevator plane does not get to balance in the air and chances of crashing will be going to increase. In simpler words, it helps in controlling the ups and downs of the plane. If the elevator is in upwards position, then your plane will move in upwards position and so on.
- Ailerons- It is also an essential part of the remote control plane that would help in controlling the movement. It works in the opposite direction as if one goes up the other one will go down. Not all the plane has this controller as this is only available in three-level planes. If you go for the advanced version of the plane, then you would not be able to find this controller.
- Flaps- It helps in the landing of the plane. At the time of landing, it helps in lowering the speed of the plane, and thus your plane can easily to get landed on the ground. It is connected on the bottom of the plane and at the time of landing the wings gets opened, and speed gets reduced. There are two flaps attached to the plane and both works at the same time. It does not work solo because the partnership of both can only help in the landing of the plane. You will get a toggle on the controller with the help of which you can turn on the flaps or turn off. You should not keep it turn on after taking off.
- Retracts- It plays its part after the take-off. The wings of the planes get to folds away with the help of this, and thus it makes it easy for the plane to fly. Thus without this, your plane will not be going to fly high in the air, and thus it will not make your sport to be interested.
Thus, these are the ways in which a remote control plane works.
