We are planning to go full-time in two years when I retire. DW was asking what I'm going to do will all my RC helicopters? The little ones won't be a problem but not sure about this guy.

Can you remove the rotor blades to shrink the footprint? I keep most of my planes in the back of the truck. The wingspans range from 18" to 76".
However, we have some room behind our "zero clearance" theater seating and I have a few things back there, too. You may have to get creative and look at all the nooks and crannies (and ceiling too).

They will fold to sit above the tail boom when stored. DW was not too supportive when I said I could hang them from the ceiling

Mine hung from the ceiling and walls in the basement in our house, but the DW wasn't willing to let me use the ceiling in our rig. However, she did let me use the back of the truck and some space in the 5'er.

I am thinking of getting into RC flying, since we are now full timing and I want a hobby. Any recommendations on aircraft, controller. Anything on what to buy or what not to buy?

Look at Horizon Hobby Bind n Fly aircraft and Spektrum Transmitters

they make some great stuff that is small to medium size and have SAFE flight and flight stabilization....great for learning!

umx Timber!

Do you have any idea of what you want to fly, quads, helicopters, planes?


You might want to search for some R/C fields in the area and go talk to some folks there. They usually are plane people.



Finding a mentor / buddy will greatly help with the learning curve. I'm into helicopters and self taught.

All of this is good advice.

A source to find a nearby flying field is on the AMA (Academy of Model Aeronautics) website: https://www.modelaircraft.org/club-finder.

While it is possible to learn on your own, I absolutely recommend you to find a club nearby that has an instructor and spend some time with him/her. In addition, many clubs have club trainers that you can get some exposure and stick time on. For the most part, they will only have planes to learn on. If not, check Craigslist and/or the local club websites. I see trainers on line all the time. A fun and helpful option is to get a quality simulator and practice with it. This eliminates the emotional trauma of crashing your plane and the process of repairs and reconstruction.

As mentioned earlier, many of today's trainer models come with flight stabilization or the "SAFE" self correcting system. This is a nice option and can help save your aircraft.
