RE: Great Planes Rapture .40
The Rapture 40 would be an OK second plane, but I wouldn't recommend it as a primary trainer. Although mine tracks well and is smooth, it's not very forgiving if taken beyond its limits. My Rapture turned out to be durable and my fuselage held up well in a crash. The wing was a different story, where one of the spars broke and the leading edge separated near the center. The right tip was crushed. It's just about fixed now, and I hope to re-maiden it within the next month or so.
