Both the Champ and the Stratos would be excellent trainers and anyone with at least a couple of months experience could fly either plane with the transmitter held behind their back! But, if you attempt to teach yourself,either plane will look like junk in short order. I would recommend that you return to your home planet, buy the plane that looks best to you and then place an ad in the Martian Herald for an instructor to help you learn to fly.
This kind of response does not encourage me to share what I have learned. I believe that I'm going to return to my home planet and not bother you again.
