A basic 2 cycle glo fuel powered engine or the equivalent electric motor is all that's needed for your first trainer but there are always things to consider.
Two cycle engines are offered in a variety of configurations. If you expect to use the engine in other aircraft after you've learned to fly. Then you may want to consider spending a little extra and getting an engine with ball bearings instead of bushings.
Electric power is also available in many trainer airplane kits today. These motors are powered by Lithium Polymer batteries and require special chargers.
If you purchase a basic four-channel radio to save money at frist, you will probably end up buying a second radio with more channels and features later. You can save yourself some money and aggravation by purchasing the more feature rich radio first.
We recommend that you purchase a 2.4 GHz spread spectrum radio systems available from Futaba, JR, Airtronics and Spektrum.
All of the above are suggestions only. There are unlimited combinations and sometime this can be quite confusing. Please feel free to direct your questions to our Training Coordinator.
Better yet come out to field and introduce yourself and ask all the questions you like, our members are always willing to help.
FAA regulations are back in so remember to register.
