The perfect jet for noobs is the 64mm F4D Skyray. My grandson went from a Slo Stick to Skyray solo with only one assisted flight in between. He's 13, they learn so fast. Another 12 year old at our field flew my Skyray solo also after only one instructional flight. He had only flown the HZ Super Cub before that. After landing the F4D he maidened a PZ T28 by himelf. Good Stick. Both kids had poblems with orientation at first because it's gray on top and bottom. White paint on the bottom would be a good idea. I might roll on some white latex. The plane will do a nasty porpoise if you let it hit the nosewheel first, but it's strong enough to take some spectacular bounces.
