A slow stick is a very good 1st plane. But, me thinks the T-52 from JK Aerotech is much better. Why? Much more durable. You can fly it when the wind will ground the slow stick. Did I mention durable? T-52 can be retro-fitted once you get bored with it (add mag mayhem reverse motor, 3 to 1 gearbox, 12x8 folding prop,
take out the dihedral of the wing and convert it to aileron control).
Wah-hoo!!!!! Mucho fun!!!! PLus, you learn how to fly ailerons!
Oh yeah, durable too!!!! I would have went through a dozen slow sticks when I learned. My T-52 is retired except for the wing.
It is used on a T-44 Xtra (05 powered). BTW, T-52 kits sell for $35 from JK Aerotech.
