Here’s some terminology you might not be familiar with. Radio Control Plane kits are sold basically 4 ways.
RTF – Ready to Fly means the kit is fully assembled (some minor assembly might be required) and that everything you need to fly is in the box.
BNF – Bind-N-Fly means the kit is just like a Ready to Fly, but does not include a transmitter. The reason for this is so that you can select a high quality radio, and use it on many different aircraft models rather than buy a new radio each time. If you need help picking a radio for a BNF plane please let us know.
ARF – Almost Ready to Fly means the kit is just a basic airframe and you will need to most likely do some building and purchase additional items to complete the kit. ARF kits are for advanced pilots with building and prior flying experience.
FPV – (First Person View) is an all-new feature in radio control! Why is it so cool? A camera is included in the aircraft that transmits live video back to your radio so you can see what your aircraft sees, just like you were in the cockpit. Join the FPV Revolution today!
