The lack of answers is telling ... neither of these models is a good choice for a newbie.

Get a Radian, you won't be sorry.

You were completely right Tkallev, my wife gave me as a present the ASK 23 , she bought it at Banana Hobby were they advertise it as ¨Perfect for Beginner 4 CH 2.4GHz FMS ASK23 Radio Remote Control Electric RC Airplane Glider ( ARF ) w/ Over 91" Wingspan + Excellent Stability + Perfect for Beginner + EPO Durability + Excellent Scale & Quality¨ . The ¨glider¨ is beautiful and stylish but a brick its easier to fly ... It will stall with amazing easiness if you try to turn using aleirons only try to turn with rudder ...Not glider at all if you loose a little speed ... I was lucky and crashed with minor lesions, I just packed it again and waiting for the Radian . Thank you again for your advice , that plane is NOT a true glider .
