Default my first 2 flights

i can officially say i have 2 flights down now and i love flying. i upgraded my hobbyzone super cub to lipo and i love it. i got 20min per battery with a lot of full throttle, takeoffs, and loops while flying in wind so i think 20 min is pretty good. i got 3 batteries for me and 3 for my dads cub so 6 total. i should be able to get a lot of practice. i did probably 20 touch and go's and most of them were really good. had a couple of perfect landings. i did break 2 props but it probably didnt help that my props are 10 for $4.99. i know they are probably cheap quality but for a beginner that will probably go through a lot of them, im perfectly happy with them. the flying world is a lot different than the car world but i think i am going to like it
