It is a blast to learn on. It is remarkably sturdy. I got it stuck in a tree and knocked it down with a stick and plowed it into the ground, all with no damage. At full throttle, it is remarkably quick and it glides well even into a light wind. Get it up high and it can soar for quite a while with power off. It comes with 2 batteries.
Prepare before your first flight. If you don't know a person who flies, watch a few videos. Charge the batteries. Insert a battery and make sure the controls work well, per the instructions. Exercise the controls back and forth numerous times to loosen the control surfaces. Out of the box they tend to stick in a slight turn or slight up/down and flexing them loosens them a bit. On mine, I used an Exacto knife tip to open the area where the control rods passed thru the body.
My first 3 launches plowed straight into the ground. I held the wing edges, 1/2" back, and had my friend power it up. The motor was pushing the nose down. I used my thumb to flex the motor down a few times, so thrust was now straight ahead. Before each flight, make sure the control surfaces move in the direction they should. With any plane the controller can fail to connect and occasionally the surfaces can get reversed.
In flight, don't over correct. Full throttle is good for launch and quickly gaining altitude, but 1/3 to 1/2 is adequate for normal flight. With no power it glides beautifully and extends flight time. At full throttle the plane is fast so turns can be jerky if over-corrected. Altitude is your friend, giving room to recover and avoid trees. Practice a gentle touch on the levers. Pushing the controls full-over over corrects the plane, so practice gentle lever movement. In case of emergency, cut power and release the control lever. The plane will self correct to level flight. If you think it's going out of range, cut power and hold the control lever hard left or right and it'll circle down. Keep the controller in safe mode until you've learned well and when you move to other modes, have some altitude. In expert, it's easy to over correct, so simply flip the switch towards you and release the control.
That said, it's easy to lose the plane, so write your phone or email address on the plane. I let a friend fly. He was doing well but flew it thru a row of trees. It should have hit, but somehow flew thru. The trees blocked the radio signal and the plane flew off out of sight, partially because he panicked, left power on, and didn't circle. It's all part of learning to fly and, fortunately, happened to a cheap plane. It cost about as much as an afternoon at a video arcade and was a lot more fun. We even got in some exercise, wandering the neighborhood looking for where it may have landed.
All great fun.
