I'm always amazed when experienced flyers push there favorite plane as good for beginners when often nothing is farther from the truth. Vapor is a good inside flier but too floaty and not durable enough for starting out. IMO Aero Ace, Multiplex pushers, Estes, etc. are good for beginners, not Vapor. Specially considering the price.
Avoid prop-out-front designs and low wing when starting out (unless you have a big box of spare props and motors that is).
