My choice as a first plane came after some research. It came from a good offer that I could not pass up. This Ready-to-Fly (RTF) model E-Sky Nemo costs $100, and comes with:
- Transmitter and Receiver
- Brushed Electronics Speed Controller (ESC)
- Brushed Motor
- Plane Kit
- Battery and Charger
- Flight Simulator CD and Cable
Not a true beginners plane but Nemo's solid-as-a-tank fuselage helped it survived many crashes (all part of flying anyway) and remains air-worthy till now.
