If you are looking to fly a fast RC airplane then there is no better choice than RC jets. Sleek and fast these wonders of the sky travel at such high speeds that I do not recommend them to beginning pilots because of the experience factor. RC Jet airplanes are difficult to fly and require help from an experienced RC pilot to get you started. If you are new to flying RC airplanes, then you should start with a electric or nitro powered RC airplane. If you decide to ignore this warning you could badly damage your aircraft. At least start with a RC pusher jet. They are the slowest RC jets and are the simplest to fly. When you have gotten an idea of how to fly RC jets on a pusher type then you can shift to the ducted fan type. Here is a description of the types of RC jet airplanes available for your flying enjoyment.
Pusher RC Jets
Pusher Jets have a propeller in the back that pushes the airplane through the air. There is an easy take off since, they are hand launched and travel at a speed much lower than ducted and turbine fan jets. RC pusher jets can have up to two electric powered pusher props. Some pusher jets are powered by a pusher prop driven by a glow engine. Glow driven pusher jets are capable of achieving some very fast speeds! If you really want a trainer RC jet then the Pusher Jet is for you!
Ducted Fan RC Jets
Ducted fan jets have a high powered fan engine that operates in a duct. This is a very popular type of RC Jet because it is quiet, smooth and super fast. The ducted fan is nothing more than a fan spinning inside of a tube. Ducted fans powered by an electric motor are called EDF's, electric ducted fans. Ducted fans powered by glow engines are called GDF's, glow ducted fans. If you are an experienced pilot and looking for a new challenge then get yourself a ducted fan RC jet and take off for new horizons.
Flying Model RC Jets
If you have some experience flying high performance RC airplanes then you can fly model jets! As suggested earlier, if you are a beginner get help from a instructor or experienced pilot at your local flying club or get a Pusher jet
RC Turbine Jets
RC turbine jets are powered by an actual RC turbine! These RC jets burn real aircraft fuel and can reach speeds in access of 200 mph!
Make the right choice and you will benefit with long hours of fun and enjoyment.
