Ok guys I have a question. I'm more into R/C heli's and wanted to try my hand at a plane. I've read a bit and searched the internet and came up with this. I wanted something RTF and something that can be flown at the park. So size was an issue not to mention I wanted something that could with stand a crash relatively speaking, easy to learn on and could with stand a breeze.

Thanks Guys

This looks like a good beginner plane. I started with the parkzone J-3 cub and learned on it. It was a good trainer for me as i flew over a wheat field so most crashes were uneventful. Replacement parts were cheap and it outlasted me and went to my dad and he learned on it as well.

Proud owner of a Hitec A9!!

Yeah, its not a bad bet. You can repair the foam easily. The only downfall is the plastic firewall where the motor mounts. Get some 1/8 aircraft ply from a buddy for a backup after the first incident. Also make the battery hatch a bit more secure as they tend to pop open up in the air. You can also get a "prop saver" hub....an O ring to attach the propeller to the prop so it just pops off when you hit the grass.
