The Polecat is an excellent flyer but probably not the best "first aileron" plane. Its very agile but tracks straight and it one of the easiest of the micros to fly inverted.

A full sized T-28 would be better for a first aileron plane, if you have a large flying field.

I agree with what was said above me. A PC is just too slippery of a plane if it is your first four channel plane.......unless you like fixing your plane while you learning to fly it.

I learned ailerons on a PC, crashed a LOT, never broke once…Just make sure you cut the throttle and fly over some descent grass and you will be fine. I LOVE the pc now!

I woudl say if you have a grass field you will be fine...just take the landing gear off!
