Gosh, I had chosen the Hawk Sky pusher-floater because it was supposed to be a "beginners plane". Then again, it was the sales people telling me that ...
I have to admit that the delta looks like a big paper airplane, but if that's what it takes to get me flying I'll do it. Heck, if necessary I'll strap feathers on my rump and crow like a rooster...
Actually, I'm already planning and scheming. If you cross your eyes a little and squint, the SUPER EASY almost looks a little like my favorite airplane of my youth - the XB-70 Valkyrie. One I get the SE flying, I am wondering if a little cutting, a little gluing, and viola... a SUPER EASY VALKYRIE !!!
Ad Astra guys !!!
