Yea, it's about as simple as you get. Power=climbs up. No power=glides down. It circles left, it circles right. That's it. (Forget any tricks or acrobatics.) It is what it is.

The only tips I can see you need is to make sure you fly it when it's fairly calm (winds aloft can blow it away before it has a chance to glide down) and fly it in a fairly open area.

What exactly did you want to know?

well i readed this newbie info http://www.geocities.com/goofup@swbell.net/Newbies.html and i decided to go get a slow stick with a airtronics VG6000 radio , that radio will last me a long while on many plane upgrades at least , what do you guys think of this idea?

Hi Mairlin,

I can second your choice of the Slow Stick. I have 2 of them(with differnet motors on each) and they make an excellent starter plane.

Both Airtronics and Hitec make good radios. Get the one with the features you think you will need and for the price you want to pay. I would recommend getting one which comes with a small reciever and micro servos. The SS will fly OK with standard servos, but your third plane might not.
