START BY SELECTING FROM THE FOLLOWING

UNPOWERED GLIDING

UNPOWERED GLIDING FROM THE FIELD - Start with a 2m span model -bungee launched from large flat field. Simple, Close to nature. Plenty of exercise setting up and fetching bungee each launch Includes  Advanced info and Bungees article.

SLOPE SOARING - wind coming up a suitable hill keeps plane in air. Requires right location and conditions. Includes Advanced Info and Zagi Flying Wing review.

ELECTRIC FLYING

ELECTRIC GLIDING - Relaxing - but ONLY if you get the equation right. Includes Advanced info.
PARK FLIERS & INDOOR MODELS - Rapidly growing range of planes, varying cost and quality. - Some slow fliers good to learn on. - Cheaper craft have novelty value which may wear off.
SPEED 400 ELECTRIC FLYING - (my favourite) - Nippy little models, excellent for "instant flying" on the way home from work. Includes Komet review.
LARGE ELECTRIC SCALE & AEROBATIC - Just about whatever you want them to be!!

INTERNAL COMBUSTION MODELS Excellent power to weight ratio and a lot of support from the shops and a lot of experienced fliers doing it. Location limitations and some messiness.
