Perfect plane to learn
I have had this plane for 2 years. It was a perfect plane for me to learn on, without an instructor with a buddy box. I find the tricycle landing gear easy to learn on. I started on Beginner mode which limits bank angle and auto returns to level. I gradually began to use Intermediate and Advanced modes, and am now confident enough to exclusively use Advanced mode. In the process of learning, I crashed it at least 4 times. I was always able to glue it back together, usually with a few replacement parts and new props, which are easy to get. I also purchased the Phoenix RC flight simulator, because it has this plane in it, and lets you use your own radio. I found the combination of the simulator and this plane a good learning method.
