If you are already a hobbyist in the field of flying remote controlled airplanes, then you have probably already heard of remote control gas airplanes. As this is a very realistic model, (compared to other types of airplanes), it needs maintenance, and beginners really need to be aware, there is lots of work involved in this type of plane.
When compared to electric model airplanes, gas powered remote control airplanes need building and can be a hassle for first time flyer. However, the experience of taking care of these gas planes by fueling and refueling the gas engines is fulfilling.
You also need to be aware gas powered RC planes (sometimes called nitro planes), can be quite costly when compared to buying electric rc airplane kits. The maintenance that comes with it is also higher in cost. Another thing to consider before buying gas remote controlled airplanes is that you can’t use gas airplanes in areas where silence is observed as gas planes can be quite noisy.
Talking about the advantages, the nitro planes can fly longer compared to other types of airplanes, which makes it ideal for people who want to fly for a longer period. With a longer flying time comes better speed. The nitro planes are fast planes.
For those people who want to experience real flying, nitro planes gives you what you want. Just make sure that the engines of your gas planes are cleaned often and well, to give you a better flying experience.
If you enjoy getting your hands dirty and like to build and repair things. Then the gas airplane is for you!
