Well sky surfer is good but takes up to much space for his field. I think he will crash it a few times so it needs to be easily repaired. The champ look kinda fun

the champ might be a good idea. It is cheap, and comes with everything you need to fly. Also, if you crash it you can easily buy new wings and fuselages. Only downside is its size, which makes it difficult to fly in wind.

It never gets old either. Move the push rods all the way into the horns, high rates, and a black end-bell motor make it loads of fun.

Surprisingly, it can even carry a keychain cam.

Anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes depending on how you fly and what battery you use. Some people use 250's which can give you 20+ minutes of flight time if you are just cruising and gliding.

Ahh... out of the constant stream of parcels arriving at my house, my favorite are by far the orders from National Balsa. I can finally build the pod for my ALES glider/Warmliner whose wing cores, boom, and motor have been sitting around ages for.
