I too am a self taught RC modeler. I started this hobby way out on left field. What I mean is, I bought a used Airtronics Super Radio for 70 bucks New... I figure I will use it on many airplanes at the same time.. I also bought 3 RX for it.. I bought a handful of servos.. Started collecting .pdf plans here and at rcgroups. I build my very first model and guess what it was? It was a mid prop pusher--- Golem's Plane-Blu F-22 Link--- http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...light=Blu+F+22

My first model was home built with free plans..







My very first Kit was E-Flight Funtana 300 I bought on ebay for 20 bucks
The reverse engineering of the Funtana 300
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1108238


Many other profile builds and plenty of crashes later, I venture into the Ducted fan area..

My second kit was a Sapac 70mm Ducted Fan Gripen.. Yes, that was my second store bought kit.... has 5 flights on it..



I must have saved hundreds by learning to fly with home build models!!

Just chuck it and punch it!

What a Cute little Guy The Blue Plane is almost as big as he is Yes making your own Planes and Flying them is Very Rewarding and Fun and Cheap Like Me it can save you a lot of money, and BTW: We all Crash from time to time, beginner or not, its just part of the Hobby, Take care and Have fun, Chellie
