Next plane?....Need aileron trainer---


Need some suggestions here for an EP aileron trainer I can park fly. Right now I have been flying a brushless Slowstick and love it. Am hoping for an ARF in something with a high wing that tolerate a little more wind than the SS. Have been looking at a couple of Cessna's but, some of these kits are not recommended due to quality issues. Would like to set it up with a brushless outrunner, using one of my 1600 mah lipos. Foam or balsa does not matter. Any good setups out there anyone is using and could recommend? Would like to know your flight times too.

Another good aileron trainer

Is the Mountain Models SmoothE Or the Dandy Sport Both are verrry easy kits. The SmoothE handles wind verry well.

GWS E-Starter has a good reputation as an aileron trainer.

An EPP flying wing can be a good trainer too. Very durable and will handle wind more easily then a conventional plane.

IF you can build definitly go with a mountain model plane. IF not do a E-Starter.

E-Starter went together in a gentle afternoon of watching football and drinking beer...
