Best to Learn With Airplanes or Helis?
by Jon Lunt
Hi, my problem is knowing just where to start the hobby. I'm in my 50's now but from being a lad I've always had a desire to fly models.
About 10 years ago I built a Wot4 but unfortunately despite the fact the model was finished it was never flown due to the overwhelming pressure of work and family commitments. It became obvious that it would never be flown so I made the mistake of selling it.
Since then however my situation has changed and due to ill health I now find myself with more than enough time to pursue my dreams of flying model aircraft. My dilemma is knowing where to start as I'm not sure of whether to learn to fly airplanes or helicopters as I have a keen interest in both.
Is it preferential or advantageous to learn to fly one before the other or doesn't it make any difference?
I know it would be of benefit to join a club and I do have a local one in mind but any advice at this early stage would be extremely helpful.
Many thanks, Jon
