Default RE: down to a couple beginner planes(which one)

I started on an Aerobird. Today you would get an Aerobird Challenger.
Ready to fly! Nothing to build, balance or set-up! Nothing to do wrong in
building, balancing and setting up! $110 at your local hobby store or on-line.

No you can't move the electronics stuff to other planes, but who cares? I
have 17 planes and I still enjoy flying my Aerobird so I wouldn't want to
move the equipment anyway. Plus this is the plane I let friends fly to try
out RC flying because it is so easy to fly and so rugged.

If you find you like RC flying, then you can invest in more costly equipment
and then go for the 4 channel plane next. If you don't like it, you only
dropped $110.

Of course if you like it, you can go back and get the air to air combat
and the bomb/parachute drop module for the Aerobird Challenger Then get a
friend to get one and have a ball with air to air combat, precison bombing
runs and parachute drops.

Get the night fly module and fly in the dark. Sooooo cool!

I have flown the plane in winds of 10-15 mph on many occasions. I often
the thermals with it and I have taken it slope soaring. It lives in the box
in my car so I am ready to fly any time.
