Yes.

Over the weekend you may get many suggestions.
But if you've made a choice and want a yes or no,
The answer is YES.

It's a yes but why don't you try scratch building?
It's much much more rewarding.
Once you master the skills, your planes look better than the readymade planes. I am
The first few planes won't look very good.
Further, since you have built the plane, you know each and every thing about it.

It's essentially the flite test speed build kit.
Made in India by vortex hobby.
You will need to purchase the electronics separately.
See the build video on flitetest.com.
You'll understand.

These are part of the air frame.
Not electronics.
Have you seen the flite test build video?
You need to buy motor, ESC, servos, tx/rx.

Rcbazaar.com , rchyper.com , vortex hobby etc.
Vortex hobby may also have an electronic package for the tiny trainer. Just check though.
Regards.
Buy the electronics as recommended on the plane.

If you want to go for a scratchbuild try out, www.vortex-rc.com

Here, you will get everything including electronics and other building materials in the kit. Both Flitetest and other beginner models are available here.

@ utkarsh, that's what I suggested.
Deepankar, I don't see the tiny trainer listed on the vortex hobby website.
Better go for the FT explorer with the electronics package.
Or the VT Allrounder with the electronics package.

You can contact Gaurav Sir on phone/whatsapp and ask him if they have VT-Mini in stock. Thats a mini version of VT-Allrounder.
Includes electronics.

Hi, prabal and utkarsh.just saw ur posts.I checked on the rchyper site and found the tiny trainer as well as the power pack A kit required for the mighty mini plane series by flite test. It is at the same price and has been told that it is similar to that of the flitetest product. Should i consider it? I have also planned to go for an RCB6i avionics transmitter so that in future i don't have to buy a second transmitter. Is my choice right?

hey,
go for the fly sky i6. I have both, the rcb 6i and fs i6.
The FS-i6 is Light Years ahead.
There is no tiny trainer on the RC Hyper Web-site. In my opinion, you should go for the explorer from vortex hobbies.
Get the following:
http://www.vortex-rc.com/product/ft-explorer-lasercut-foamboard-kit/
http://www.vortex-rc.com/product/power-pack-b-2/

In addition, Get a battery (maybe 2) as one is not enough Grin (Stay away from wolfpack and cheap lipos)
A gens ace battery is available in the combo as an extra.
Get a radio with reciever (fs i6)(Around 3.5K)
And a balance charger. (DO NOT GET A B3)(A Imax B6 will do)(1.5K)

Since this is a larger plane it comes with beefier setup, you will be able to use the electronics on a variety of future planes (upto 48").
Please DO NOT buy cheap and cloned stuff as it will be much more expensive in the long run. Do not make the mistakes that i have made earlier.

@dipankar joshi,
Pardon me for repeating what I've often said on this forum.

If I wanted to learn to ride a bicycle, I could
1. Buy one and get some help/instructions
2. Build one from parts
3. Design a bicycle myself

Similar choices are available for entering RC flying.
Have to be clear about one's objective.
Learning to fly? To build? To design?
Do not confuse these three.

The best way to learn to fly RC (without pain) is:
1. Pay training fee and learn from an instructor on his model, with no expenditure on hardware
2. Use a proven combo of RC and model, with or without a friend to guide you.

Or you can experiment with alternatives, with different probabilities of success!
The alternatives can however provide a lot of joy, even if they fail to help you fly successfully!
Regards

Rchyper.com has the i6 but for 4600. It's a newer version.
Get the one with ia6 receiver. Not the multirotor one.
Here in Delhi, we get the i6 for 3100 RS in Chandni Chowk.
Yes, it has everything except the battery (which can be added from the Dropbox on the same product page)
This along with the tx/rx and airframe kit is all you need.
I hope you have knives, hot glue gun, soldering iron.
Regards.
I wish that these kinds of kits were available when I started in the hobby.
 Wink
All the best
Clear skies to you

Yes, go ahead.
Mode 2 means that throttle is on your left .
You can adjust the other channels as you like.
Don't worry about the Kv. My explorer flies with 1200.

Information sharing improves knowledge of both.



Do you read the posts in
http://www.rcindia.org/rc-india-forum/the-rc-india-gems/

You may try by visiting of scratch built
http://www.spadtothebone.net/
http://www.spadtothebone.net/freeplans.htm
http://www.spadtothebone.net/SPAD/corocub/Corocub_1.htm
http://www.spadtothebone.net/SPAD/PDF/Ultra%20Spad%20Stick.pdf

But  specific advice.
1. Dont test motor to DC, it will be burnt. Connect with ESC and then only check.
2. Be careful of CG. Make glide test.

and also,
3. Test in simulator using simulator cable with Tx or analog joypad, before real flight.
4. Land on long grass to avoid damage to the plane.
Hope you will be enlightened with reading these..

Sir,
What I think is that SPAD's are a tad bit faster.
That's why I recommended a depron model to deepankar.
