I don't want to scare you off it altogether. It's one of the best foamie jets around but I think it's more for the experienced foamie EDF pilot. That being said I'm only talking about learning how to fly something a little simpler. Maybe a mate could let you fly a more traditional EDF jet before you fly this. I'm sure someone else will chip in and tell you to go for it. Just my 2c

As well as the Phase 3 F-16 I recommend the Multiplex Twister but it's not as aerobatic as the F-16 BUT it is more durable. A lot lot more.
Thanks for the info, i understand that this may not be the best edf trainer but i love the way it looks and seems to be a good solid edf foam with strong wheels and in a price of less than 100$ without shipping cost i feel i cant resist. This plane is a temptation!!
