gfl,

I have no idea what your LHS was thinking, or even what product they may have thought they heard about. The Carbon Cub is in NO WAY a replacement for, or even a good alternative to, the Champ. The Champ is a teach-yourself-to-fly trainer, the Carbon Cub is a sport plane. The Carbon Cub is NOT a trainer!

Being a hobby, modelers of all skill sets are going to buy whatever product interests them, and that's fine. Just be aware that if you're expecting flight characteristics like the Champ, buy the Champ. The Carbon Cub is not going to give you the same experience of self-righting stability and lazy slow flight. It gives you a lot of much more advanced capabilities that are just not appropriate for the beginning flyer.

Have fun.
