fwiw--I'm an old newbie---was in the hobby 20 yrs ago. First time I tried to fly a 40 sized trainer I couldn't get it off the ground. Second attempt (same day) I tried hand launching. Went 10' and flew into the ground. After gathering up the pieces I examined my radio and model. When giving up elevator I realized the elevator was going down! When I had stood behind the model and pulled back on the stick I saw the elevator surface go down which in my own feeble mind seemed correct since I was pulling back(down) on the stick.

First mistake above? I was trying to learn by myself. I won't make that mistake again.

regards

Wayne
