Default RE: Looking at a PT-20 for first plane

The plane builds with ailerons but there is a section in there on locking them down if you want 3 channel operation. So you say just learn to fly on 4 channels.
I'm one of those rare people who learned on 3 channels and then went to 4 on the second plane. While the transition wasn't too bad, I recommend if you have a choice of starting on 4 channels, do it. In addition to avoiding the 3 to 4 channel transition, ailerons will make your first plane more interesting than if you only have 3 channels.
