Question
A good 2014 flying wing for beginner

Hi folks,
Looking for and updated list of 2014 models of flying wings ideal for beginner. I fly quads and other foamies planes but never a wing. Would like to put FPV gears eventually. Also, do I launch it like a Frisbee?

one of the crash test hobby wings would be great. They are really durable. For FPV you may want a grim reaper XL or a deep reaper which they just renamed but I don remember the name.

I find a power-on, sidearm launch works best for me.

CTH are extremely durable, but easy to build and repair, if they are damaged.
