2002(ish) - The Flailing Firebird
I finally broke away from work and headed down to the LHS to talk about this guy I saw sloping at the beach. They let me borrow some thermal soaring VHS tapes. So cool! I wanted to fly with the birds too! I knew a few guys that were flying Zagis but I made the mistake of buying an electric planes to learn with.
HobbyZone Firebird XL - I did have some fun with this plane but I learned that it was a waste of money. I would sped about a minute flying it and hours fixing it. Very sensitive to wind, more difficult to repair than a foamie, etc. It flew like garbage. I eventually gave up on the plane and the hobby. Sad. I would never recommend this plane to anyone.
