Re: After trainer now what?

The smaller Funtana's and Showtimes are fun to burn holes in the sky with. They do teach you some nice intermediate maneuvers and how to comfortable doing "aerobatic" things (ie/ spins, snaps, loops, etc), but are tough to 3d well. I've flown them, and they just don't get it right. jake 027, if you want buy a GreatPlanes/Hangar9 product for your son to 3D with in that size, buy the Reactor .46/.70, that would be your best bet IMHO.

You would need a profile to learn how to 3D proficiently, like in the Paul Swany line-up (Burrito, Mojo60, Primo, etc). These profiles fly as slow as trainers on low rates, but are a cinch to hover and harrier.

Trust me, I've done the progression, and I wish someone would have told me all of this.
