I have never flown a plane either but I have 5 of them. I have a 1/5 scale pica cessna I am building. Pretty cool looking plane.

Better do it with an experienced pilot using a buddy box or you can kiss it goodbye and drown your sorrows in a pint of Guiness.

Do the props spin the same direction? If you ever lose an engine, reduce the power, lower the nose and ease back on the throttle GENTLY! If you don't, you'll get a quick lesson in vmc. For a first electric airplane, I personally would suggest a plane made by GWS. It looks like the red baron and has a metal stick for a fuse. Damn near impossible to crash. If you can fly a heli, no sweat with a plane.
Good luck, It's a nice change from helis.

It's called the Slow stick and it is absolutely hands down the BEST first airplane ever made! I have the first version with the wooden stick, but the new version with the metal stick is even better!

BTW, it can crash, but is easy to fix! I've had so much fun with mine that i try to crash it, hehe! Ever try to fly into the windsock and keep flying?

As they say." If you have a twin engine plane and you lose one the other will take you to the scene of the accident"

It's hard to hit the auto s/w

Also since its made of eplar foam it can be repaired with superglue Both motors are joined together so i wouldnt expect them to stop. Oh btw its electric too! so i hope they wont stop!!! didnt get out on sun to many other things going on so will have to wait another week

Just remember.

When inverted, do not pull back on the throttle to go to negative pitch!

You'll like the twinstar. Those things can do all sorts of aerobatics. They're really fun.

Pretty rare to lose one on an electric, that's the beauty, so reliable. Multiplex has always put out nice stuff, well-designed.

Flying helis since gyros had springs.

A guy at my field flys one of those. Inspite of the fact it is very light, it does seem to cope very well with windy conditions, but then it often ends up in a tree

The twin star is a nice flying plane, I have one of the previous versions. Its more responsive than a lot of trainer planes, but will handle winds much better than something like a Slow Stick. It also flies upside down fairly well.
