If you want a REAL trainer, go next door to the ***EPP Tough - The Best Slow Flyers on the Planet*** thread and check out the Albatross. If you want to learn to fly you need a plane with survival skills, slow flying ability and self-stabilization. The Albatross does each of those better than any other.

Try this with a Champ, Apprentice, Slow Stick, Super Cub, Corsair S............

I applaud her efforts in attaining abs like that.... and simultaneously cringe at the prerequisite naval jewelry.

Does the jewellery in her navel mean she's in the navy? I would have thought she was army.....

could have been a typo when it was meant to be navel. i see "defiantly" typed all the time in place of "definitely". i suspect iphone spellcheckers at work.

ps - and my personal favorite, "hanger" instead of "hangar".

In my opinion, the best trainer initially is a pc simulator like RealFlight 7. I have real world experience flying single engine aircraft, however only recently found the joy in R/C flying. I practiced on RF7 for a few days, an hour or so a day, before flying my first plane, which was a Hobbyzone Delta Ray with SAFE technology. The sim definitely helped ease the learning curve. I crashed the Delta Ray once, but due to my own stupidity and cockiness.

Within a month, I went from a single plane to seven: Delta Ray, Apprentice S 15e, Parkzone P-47, BFG-109, Super Cub, FMS Rochobby 2.2m V-Tail motorized glider, and a UMX Radian. It's simply that addicting.

I believe the Delta Ray would be a good first plane if you have zero experience after the simulator, however you will soon outgrow it. If you do not belong to a r/c club, then the Delta Ray may be your best bet since it doesn't require a lot of space to fly like the Apprentice does in beginner mode. However, if you can join a local r/c flying club, then I would suggest the Apprentice without hesitation. You can buddy box with an instructor and the plane will last you much longer than the DR, and it can be easily upgraded once you've reached that level of expertise.

Edit: If your budget is $150.00, then wait get champ like mentioned above. Sorry, I read that after I posted this. Doh!

No, can't be a typo, it must be a discussion about what weapons she carries. A much more intereting thread than a third (yes, third time) query by the OP and exactly the same question.

So now to typos and the use of English English, e.g (not i.e.) "your doing it wrong and theirfor cant spell (or write) correctly". Shall we go on?

OK, buy a Champ, less than $150 and they are repairable. I mangaged the down one (out of near a dozen flying most nights) at indoor flying a week ago, with my J-Bug. The same J-bug that got taken out by a Vapour some weeks previously.

If the OP wants to build, a J-Bug is also quiet (oops, quite) docile.

Yes, Yes! The highest and best function of computers is to take blame. They're like wives except they don't punish us afterwards.

yes, it can be a typo. definition: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/typo "a mistake (such as a misspelled word) in typed or printed text". as long as it is a mistake, any mistake (another word can result from a spelling error), it is a typo. the reason behind the error or the perpetrator (yes, RR, i am still blaming Apple iphone and not the consumer who chooses to purchase one ) are irrelevant.
