You talking about the E-Flite UMX Extra or the PZ Sukhoi XP? I have the UMX Extra. Great flying little foamie for a gym but I hardly fly mine, it hates wind. The Sukhoi is a good yard or small park flyer but can't really 3D, it's more for scale or general sport flying stuff.

I would recommend a larger foamie if you don't have a good place inside, like the 3DHS Extra 330 foamie. I am thinking about selling my UMX Extra and building one of them.

I would say no .....

Its very fragile which is not good for someone learning 3D.

The best plane for you would be an EPP foamie like the Extra 330 Foamie from
3DHobbyShop.

It flies great and can take the abuse of a beginner.
