Neither would be a good choice for a beginner.
Im assuming you fly RC but you are new to DLG flying.

Both models are moulded or better known as mouldies.
Basically with DLG we have two types of wing contruction. One being a foam core vacuum bagged wing and the other being a moulded wing which is usually hollow in nature.

A foam core wing is slightly less accurate because the core determines the accuracy with the outer skin being formed around the foam. A mouldie`s exterior mirrors the mould so in that aspect each and every wing is close to identical. Mouldies are truer to the form but also harder to repair [remember the hollow bit]

Having said that. The Fireworks 4 is a very nice glider, slightly outdated but still competitive in the right hands.

The two you are inquiring about are very comparable although the F 4 is known to have very nice handling characteristics
