5 mins. in the air? sounds like you did awesome Al!

Of course, the calmer the wind the better.
Next time out make your goal trimming her out for hands off straight and level flight.

On your second flight it sounds like your stalled it on the final turn.
Make your turns gentle, wide and flat. Try to keep the model from banking too much.
Basically what you want try to do is just "adjust" the trim settings with the stick and fly the pattern.

And on final approach keep the nose down until it's about 1 meter off the ground then slowly feed in some elevator and flatten out the glide.

Hope this helps.
