My thoughts?

1) Punctuation is useful when trying to convey a question.

2) The Trojan should be ok to start with if you have plenty of guidance and maybe someone to buddy-box with for the first few flights.

Hi mdamage,

The T28 is an excellent plane but not necessarily for the beginner. Like Butane says, if you have fellow fliers who are competent and can use a buddybox system you are in with a good chance. Don't try and fly the plane yourself as it will end in disaster.

If you want a good little plane to practice on by yourself look into a hobbyzone champ or even the ultra micro T-28. Both of these will bind directly to your DX8

That will be a good first plane. When you are ready to get your second plane in a couple of months I recommend you get a VQ Fly Baby ARF from Hobby People. It is my current plane and it flies great. Building an ARF as a second plane is a great idea to give you building experience and gives you the ability to put what ever kind of hardware you want inside.
