You bet it is
A TopSky is a good option: http://www.atlantahobby.com/Store/pc...-401p14679.htm

thank you for showing me that I'm not the only one (black man) trying to learn to fly these things. It made my morning to see some else like myself flying and flying well.

Thank you

I started and stayed with the Gambleras I fly mostly power but it's still only 85 bucks but you build it.. no foam wing It is a very simple build though. Rudder / elevator and flies real nice

Thank you
As a Danish white guy, I am not sure what to reply to that But other than the guy on the movie, we have another African American in our club who is one of the top pilots in this part of the country. So have fun

Yes, I hear that the Gambler is also a great beginner model. Lots of fun for little money.

Fusion DLG Plan


I drew this plane up, while I was recovering from a surgery. But have not taken the time to build it yet. So the plane is unproven as a flyer. But I believe that it should build pretty easy and fly well. Hope this helps anyone wanting to try it.

I was going through the iFone and found these clips. Only shortcoming of iFone camera is that it doesn't have zoom. That was an epic contest with all the landouts.

Nice video Frank! That iPhone camera is surprisingly good. Isn't it true that Oleg simply spins 50% faster than everyone else
