Some building techniques have changed too. Today, I would start right off with the brushless motor setup. Newer Slow Stick kits are a little different too. They all come with a plastic joiner for the center of the wing - I don't think you need it, but it's something you can use.

That one is too small for a Slow Stick, might work on a Pico. For the full size Slow Stick, you need about 100 watts.

Gotta Agree

Basic control is learned high, If needed pack your stuff and go, Before you tried to fly in a small space you should be able to transition from front to back control without thinking.

There you can find a lot of beginner information and a place to download some more planes for FMS...

BTW, the planes from GWS are some of the best quality on the market, but you do have to build them yourself, and it is easy to screw up the build on some of them if you don't read all the instructions first and picture it in your mind, and be sure exactly what you're going to do before you start to do it. Get out the parts and sit them in front of you while you read the instructions, and be sure to visualize what you're about to do.
