Ok I think I might just go with the f 35 v2, I do think that starting on a hawk sky would make my accent easier but at the moment I am doing a lot of flight sim and I think that cause of my helicopter flight experience, even though it might not do anything . Also I will build it scrappy so I don't have to worry about breaking it, I mean when I say scrappy like not painting it or anything.

Good luck

Any suggestions?


I was in the same boat. I ended up ordering a Turnigy 9XR from hobbyking: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__31544__Turnigy_9XR_Transmitter_Mode_2_No_Module_.html

You could also go with the slightly older 9X: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/store/__20976__Turnigy_9X_9Ch_Transmitter_without_Module_Mode_2_v2_Firmware_.html

They are by no means the greatest radios out there, but for the money they are hard to beat. The 9XR has a tendency of being on backorder because of high demand vs low supply.

Both links point to transmitter WITHOUT an actual module included. The module is the part that takes care of the actual transmission to the receiver. The 9X / 9XR is the part that 'computes' the signal based on your stick input/mixes/etc.. There are combos available, so Tr AND module. The bonus of no included module is that you can select the type of module YOU want to use.

and oh: there's also a lot of people very happy with their Spektrum radios, they come in different shapes and sizes as far as pricing and functionality is concerned...

Hey, I am beginner to rc planes and I was wondering what plane should I build the f35 v2 or the f22 v2 please help

If you are new to foam and never built one and bought the tutorial from RCPOWERS, build one of the gliders first, the SU-37 or the F-22. This will tone your skills for cutting, fitting and hot glueing the foam. If you have no experience in RC then using a sim is a very positive education tool, but you said you have flown heli's.

I do not think you will go wrong with either one of the planes you want to start with, the F-22 or the F-35, but my preference was the F-22 with simple elevons only using the V3 microjet. It is floaty and a great glider when throttle is shut off. As far as the TX, get the best one you possibly afford.

And with that you mean the F22 V2, right? Not the V1, I think that's much harder to fly because its a faster plane / less floaty / not-so-good-glider.

Thanks so much I will go with the 9xr as well for the time being. I have been looking at it for a while, also how far can that radio transmit with just stock.

Really? I had no idea that the Alphajet was so easy to fly.


I found it very easy to fly.

Use some expo and dual rates for more control but this thing just wants to float and hover..

Uncut movie, me flying my alpha jet..

That depends...

...on the module you buy for it. You have FlySky that I think is about the cheapest, but most simple (e.g. no failsafe), then there's orange, dsmx, FrSky, ...

Each has their pros & cons, so do your research. (I went with FrSky because of the failsafe, extended range, and options for telemetry - the latter for potential future use)

can someone explain how the hk t6a mix should be? I can get the elevator and ailerons be synced in pitch, but the roll is reversed

can you reverse it in your transmitter?
