HobbyZone Sport Cub S RTF Electric Airplane (616mm)
This plane is AWESOME. The SAFE technology is amazingly good. I have flown it probably 5 or 10 times in the last two days with no prior experience and it makes flying pretty easy (at least in beginner mode) Battery lasts about 6 minutes, take about 32 minutes to recharge so I am ordering some more batteries today. Gently crashed it several times and you really cant tell. Foam is very forgiving. Granted the crashes were pretty gentle and into the grass, but still. I just can't get over how well the SAFE thing works. It really will land itself and the panic button will save you as long as you are a few feet off of the ground. Amain.com is great too. Delivered a couple of days ahead of schedule. It will do most of the maneuvers that the real Cub will do including flying backwards against the wind. Beginner's airplane. Aerobatics must be entered from a dive pretty much like the real A/C. Motor has a lot of power but not enough to hover.

HobbyZone Sport Cub S RTF Electric Airplane (616mm)
This has just been a wonderful experience! This is my first plane and it has exceeded all my expectations. I saw the FT youtube review and purchased it the next day. It is truly a forgiving trainer which is great for me and I've crashed it hard several times since I purchased it. Most of the time I dust it off and it flies again. When I attacked a tree though i cracked the wing slightly on both sides and dislodged the engine mounts but the tree was way worse off. Fixing what I broke hasn't required any skills and it flew like new the next day. I totally recommend this for someone like me trying to break into this hobby. When it is up the air it flies like dream and it only makes you want to fly more.

This plane was recommend by the people in the store for a beginner and it has been fun. I had a plane before that was frustrating but this plane has me hooked. With the 3 modes starting at beginner and moving up has been great. Looking forward to my next plane. One note will not fly if there is much of a wind

Plane is awesome and alot of fun. The down fall is the spektrum rx tx . I bought two rtf and both drop signal so you cant control the plane. I almost lost the plane because it wouldent take direction. As soon as i put it in intermediate mode it starts dropping signal. On both model's. 15 feet away to 30 feet away signal is lost.
