You can find cheap rc airplanes if you just know where to look.
If you're just getting started in this wonderful hobby, and want to test the waters to see if this hobby is for you, I recommend you check out Hobbytron or eBay. I've also included some links below that will help you find cheap rc airplanes. Some are as cheap as $14 with radio included.
Right now Hobbytron has a Clearance sale going on. Save up to 30% off on rc planes and many other toys. Also, be sure to checkout the Hottest new products of the year. Hurry, because these items won't last. They're perfect for that special Christmas gift, plus you get Free Ground Shipping on selected HOT items at HobbyTron.com
Also, be sure to check out the coupons page for more low priced rc planes.
All of the links on this site deal with reputable merchants so you don't have to worry about not getting a product when you order it. When using ebay, however, care should be taken when bidding on an item. Make sure you check the sellers feedback rating to see whether other people have had problems and whether or not they were resolved. Most sellers on Ebay are legitimate, but as is the case in any business, there are always the rip-off artists. So please keep this in mind when bidding.
