microflite. videos are generally not a good way to deteremine how YOU will see the plane. Everything always looks smaller than what it does in real life. You do have a point though, the smaller plane will be harder to see, so effective marking and the use of landing gear will help in identifying orientation in the sky.

I'm not sure of the slowflight capabilities of this model...the lighter you make it the better, but it's not designed as a slowflyer. So IMHO this really isn't suited as a first aileron plane. You may be better off learning on something slower, then moving to this when you are comfortable.

Having said that, these are tough little planes...I crashed my bipe NUMEROUS times and have never broken a wing or tail. (plenty of props though ) I have broken the spar once (after I had already weakened it by modifying it). Many of us are using a CF arrow shaft as a fuse. these are STRONG, ..you won't break them in a hurry.

Here is another pic ... a very low pass by and you can see the nose is up fixing to climb out.. very smooth stable do to the type of plane it is .. it can track low to the ground without getting tossed about.. due to the power to weight ratio..notice the camera has tobe moveing with the plane to get a clear shot of it..you can see parking lot lamps sweeping as the camera was tracking the plane..
