the saga continues. took the wild hawk out this evening and crashed it real good. first two flights (hand launched for the first time) went great. confidence built and i did a loop. no problem. second loop, i went to level off and i guess i didn't pull up in time. seemed to me the the elevator response was slower because when i pulled up, it didn't level out fast like the first loop. it went almost straight into the ground. nose broke completely off behind the landing gear slot, tail came off where it was taped together, and both wings have small stress cracks just under the wing mounting rod. it hit hard!
anywho, i was looking at the Hobbico ElectriStar (link below) last night and it looks really nice and sturdy. do any of you have any experience with this plane or know much about it? this is about the price i would be willing to put into a decent trainer.
if there are other trainers out there in this price range that anyone would recommend, please let me know.
