Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



Can I request experts the consumables cost for nitro  plane?
As far as I know, After building, Battery is only need recharge and much cheaper. Moreover, Larger capacity cell and Motors are available now a days much cheaper.

And it is clear that Price war has began in Electric RC. Very soon, IR indoor plane would be available like Rs. 600/- IR Co-Axial Heli.

I Recommend, buy a Analog joy-pad (Rs.200-400), Practice on Simulator Softeare and read the write ups on this forum and wiki and follow related links. Just building and flying can ruin your hard earned money and may generate anger. Your pocket money will be inceased and buy a Tx/Rx with mix function like turnigy 9Ch. (You can practice on Tx/Rx too with sim cable which is much better, but  reflex with visual synchronization is required which can also be made in Joy-Pad but fine adjust will definitely require practice on Sim by Tx/Rx).

And finally made EP300 like large plane (Slow Flyer) with coro that will make almost nondestructive.

Ady, you won't need any other electronics apart from the stuff you've mentioned. But like Kalyan sir says, PLEASE make sure you read a lot about all of them before you buy them or start constructing your plane. You'll also need building materials, hand-tools, power-tools etc.

That depends on your budget. Have you purchased anything yet?

Look, when you've gone through enough threads and tutorials you won't have questions related to selecting power setup and such.
As everyone has suggested, building a plane will be easier on your wallet as compared to buying an ARF. Even if you go for an ARF, do read a lot about handling the electronic parts before buying it.
Reading is boring, but otherwise you might end up in a total mess.

Depron can be cut using laser and CNC. You can also use a hot-wire bow.
It's really easy to build. Search for 'Hot-wire foam cutter' here or on google.

Also, have you considered coroplast? It's cheap, durable and can be cut easily using a small cutter or pen-knife.

@Ady - Simulator Practice is the key. Like all the experts say try to get analog joypad or a basic 6ch RC from Rcbazaar or any other LHS's and put in weeks of practice in flying...in the meantime go through different topics in this form, start with the RC-India Gems , find out people who regularly fly in your area and try to meet with them, trust me that will give u a whole new platform and idea to start of in RC after about a month or so. Then u can source all the electronics and scratchbuild your first trainer...

Please dont be in a hurry. Decide clearly what u want to do, then source them. Once u get the depron sheets , yourself will understand how to use them. Go step by Step. Or else you'll just be emptying your pocket for nothing!!

Yes, you can use a knife but something like a stanley-cutter would be better.
Ady, instead of trying to scale down a cessna, why don't you try a simple SPAD? It'll be much less headache!

That's O.K.
For your 1st build, you should be more concerned about building it properly and learning to fly!
Later on you can build a more aesthetic plane.

Do you have a RC flight-simulator?

And, I'm not suggesting you to build the exact 'ESPA3D'. I posted the links to show you how easily you can build a plane out of coro.
First determine the dimensions of the plane using info from:
http://adamone.rchomepage.com/design.htm

Decide the wing area (and hence chord and span) according to the motor you are going to use.
For example:
For a 160-170 watt motor, wing area = 300 - 450 sq. in.
For a 300 watt motor, wing area = 400 - 500 sq. in.
etc....
