It should at least be near indestructable at this weight.
If I had a 32" and one of these onhand, which should be used as a first 3d plane?
A standard 32" plane such as the Edge will be easier and more forgiving to learn 3D with, and for that reason I would recommend one of those. Outside, you will have plenty of room, so the advantage of the mini's smaller footprint won't be felt.
However, indoors, I am starting to feel that a Mini with toned-down control throws and a 6x3 prop would be a great choice as it makes the area feel so much bigger.
