Wattage Sporty for second plane newbie?

I've been flying a Pico Slow Park Flyer for about a week now with ease. I am now thinking about buying the sporty flyer and transfering my radio gear into it. Is the Sporty I difficult plane to fly? Also, do you guys recommend this plane?

THX!

T-52, great trainer, but will allow more aerobatics, and greater wind conditions.

I second John's remarks. My Sporty is set up as a full house aerobatic ship with the "370" motor upgrade, and it's a handful. You can set it up as a rudder/elevator plane with the stock 280 and I suppose it would be more docile, but I still wouldn't recommend it for a second plane.

Well it looks like my Sporty is already being shipped...I'm thinking about sending it back. My other option would be to practice longer with my slow flyer and then move onto the Sporty. Any suggestions/tips on flying the Sporty? What should I watch out for? Any general tips on handling and wind conditions for the plane? Hopefully, I won't make rubbish out of the Sporty, however, I fear that this may happen..

hey there , you could put it "up" for a bit and come back to it later i have "put up" many kits and arfs and have gotten back to them and am glad i did so , but no kidding aside my lhs has the sky scooter pro kit version for 49.99 i would sudjest you pick one of those that'a way you will get used to a faster more areo type of plane and if you put her in the ground she will more than likely bouce back!
