an unassisted newbie is a difficult predicament in which to be. The part I underemphasized is that a beginner will really struggle to be successful if unassisted. If you are a newbie, the secret is to get someone to help you. In the document I have a link to help you find a local club near you. Contact a local club and get help from someone. Have them look over the plane, help you adjust the control surfaces and do proper control and control throw checks, and then even put you on a buddy box. A few weekends on a buddy box with one of these planes and you will be good to go. The reason I stand behind these planes so much is because they are excellent prices for the quality, and with a little help from an experienced guy, you get a $300 airplane for $100. I'd really like to get more kids into this hobby, and kids can't afford $300+ in most cases. You are right about help though--it can never be underestimated.
