Its very easy - It would take a blind man to not see that bright red. oreintation is good because the top is red and the bottom is white, a good contrast.

if you need a little excitement.....get the Mig. it's really not that hard to fly if you have a little aileron practice....it just sounds so freakin cool !

I have not seen this as a problem. And it's not because I haven't crashed any. I did most of my learning on these things and still have my original beast with all original parts (and lots of glue and cf) but all pretty simple repairs. The beast seems to be the most fragile outside of the nose of the Sbach. They are more damage prone than the 1 cell um's, but not even in the league of bigger park flyers as far as crashability.

I agree with you bobly, a slow nose in over grass does little damage, most its the beasts wings that are complicated. I guess i may have been exaggerating, But i want to make sure he knows its not like a corsair or a champ when you have a bad nose in, that you have to be high when your doing something that might lead to an accident.

If this is your first 2S plane, get the Beast or Sbach. I would NOT suggest the Mig as a first 2s plane as it is fast and can get away from you in a hurry. To me the Mig was about speed and I like to do snap rolls, tumbles, and spins. The Mig goes fast does loop and roll but that is about it. That is why I sold it, just wasn't for me. It does fly well in wind and goes decently quick.
