I have been an Rc pilot for 5 years now and it is really fun and it a sport for anyone. Lots of ppl should get into it becuase it is cheap and fun. I have many planes and have flown them many time. I have also crashed many time but thats why they make glue. If you wanted to get into the sport I would suggest you do reseach on local fields and if your yard is big you could also fly there. i belong to the screamin eagles club in NY. I also belong to AMA(Academy of Model Aeronautics. This covers insurance and with it i can fly at any club with their approval. There are many sites that you can go to about planes. if you are a first timer a good plane to start with is a ARF or almost read to fly plane. This requires only a little assembly and then you are ready to fly. Another type you can try is a kit plane. all it comes with is a blue print and a box of wood. you pretty much start from scratch and build a plane. I have built a few of these and they are very fun. You would need lots of patients tho. There are also planes that are ready to fly but are sometimes expensive and it easier just to spend time and get an arf. I love the sport and so does my dad and Uncle. We fly every sun and wed and have lots of fun. If you have any Question feel free to ask and i will do my best to answer.
