Is it OK for a school girls uniform to be on a wife?

I'm gonna ask the as yet unasked...

Good for 3d beginners outdoors?
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?

Which 32" plane do you have? My guess is a 32" plane on 2s lipos may be a little "floatier", softer, and forgiving... which is better when learning. IMO.

That's about what I thought but wanted to ask anyway.
I have a Slicko coming in with plans to step up to a costlier TH plane after beating it to death.
I just really enjoy mini planes in the 21 to 25" range.

It will be a while before you beat the Slick "to death". you can beat it... then beat it some more, then beat it even harder.... unless you're flying combat with other guys (and even if you are), you'll have a hard time wearing it out.

A wife in school girl's uniform is a healthier approach........

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.
