pretty simple eh. just like an rc plane. bank and yank! i took a ride in my(cousin or uncle im not sure which) lancair 360 and like 1/2 way through the flight he said im going to take some pictures fly the plane. its actually pretty easy. he told me to keep it at 3000 feet so i did. it was fun! i flew till he took over to land it too!

Nice. Gliders need rudder to turn because ailerons make it yaw the opposite direction your turning.
Well the funjet maiden went well. The elevator D/R needed adjusting so we brought it down. 2nd throw it fishtailed and flipped over. Luckily i didnt turn on the motor so it wAs fine. Third throw, it did the same thing, but after the motor was on. I turned off the motor before it crashed, but the speed was too much And the plane couldnt take it. The fuse cracked across the middle in front of the wing. Well thats what foam is for! Its not like i crashed a concept x2. ($1400 molded dlg)

It is so much planes? Can you... umm, put that into English for us?

Cool! Glad to hear. Now I just need to get my Edge up and flying, my largest plane! What's the wingspan on your Mustang?

Same height for me. I climbed 600 ft.

I thoroughly enjoyed the turbulence and G's.
