    Haley,
    Maybe you've already mentioned it but what field are you involved in for a profession? Is this just a hobby for you or a possible career shift?
    Don't worry about all the new terminology or aeronautical jargon…it will come if you have an interest in it. A friend of mine who I was flight instructing at the time asked a United Captain why the thrust reversers were mounted at an angle (The classic 737-200 model with the Pratt & Whitney JT-8 engines) and this wise experienced gray-haired captain simply answered: "Ask a Boeing Engineer! All I need to know is that they work!" My friend's ego was bruised as he was a physics major and a brainiac…just not good at people skills.
    You're doing an excellent job and your enthusiasm for flight and thirst for knowledge is evident.
    Let us know if you've flown in a full scale aircraft and what make and model.
    You should apply to fly a demo flight with the Blue Angels!
    Enjoy your week!

    flew this on 10mph wind, kept flying
    flew this and crashed 20 times hard on grass, kept flying
    flew this and the engine cowling foam was torn apart, kept flying
    glued the motor to the prop shaft thinking the motor's gonna be damaged, still kept going
    wing that's gonna be torn apart then kept together with gorilla glue, still flying
    if there's a RC version of chuck norris, this is pretty much it

    You take me back about 5 years, my first plane was either the champ or the cub, since, i now have a 3 rd champ and same cub. Now you will be looking forward to flying larger aircraft. After my cub I moved up to a 36 inch low wing civilian. Which was almost identical to my new 50 inch cherokee from h h. It flies as easy just need more space. Continue to fly, new subsbr

    throttling down when flying downwind s a mistake. The wind is moving in the same direction so the speed of the air movement over the control surfaces is reduced even though the plane is travelling faster over the ground. Always keep the throttle up when flying downwind to prevent stalling.

    The Sports Cub S was my very first plane and it is an excellent beginner trainer. If mine had not been destroyed by one of my dogs….. The rebuilt plane now hangs above my desk and I have moved on to bigger and better planes.

    I flew for 15 yrs, then gave it up and it's been 20 or so yrs. since I've flown.. I wonder where I rank?.. maybe I should start over with the new computer stuff.. I will probably start at intermediate level and get a co- pilot to dial it in.

    Now, that is just too kool. I'm a total novice to this rc plane stuff, but it seems like a lot of fun. Thanks to you and your video, I'm going to get the same plane. I have a DX8 controller and will bind it to that. I have a "little" experience flying drones (DJI Spark and, my favorite, a Parrot ANAFI). Thanks, again for a great video and your presentation is so nice.

    Nice video, thanks for sharing. The best way to get some rc plane skills is at your local RC club. Here you can get advise from skilled pilots and buy second hand cheap plane that actually can fly with more than a breeze.

    This video is a commercial for Horizon Hobby (and ok for me) but 9 out of 10 untrained will smash this plane in first attempt.

    When you said you were going to do a "loop," I thought, you better take it out of beginner mode or it's not going to happen. I see what you meant now, I would call that a pattern or a lap, anyway, awesome job. P.S. Excellent choice in going around on that one approach when the wind took you for a ride on short final, never be afraid to go around when it gets that unstable close to the ground.

    Thanks for the instructive video. I'm pretty new to RC planes and have been flying a Night Vapor in a gym. I'm wanting to try flying more of an outdoor trainer and considered the little Cub, but thought it would struggle with wind. So, I bought a bit larger UMX Timber that runs a brushless motor. Have you flown this plane and, if so, do you have any suggestions about doing so? Thanks for your thoughts …

    Just as FYI those Eneloops are almost the worst rechargeables on Amazon. The worst are the EBL. Go with either of the Amazon basics. The silver are Japanese made and better then the Chinese sourced white ones.

    Hey RC Girl, You ROCK! Fun watching you demo these planes. I want one really bad because of you and your "I can do this attitude"! I'm an old sail plane guy here in your area. Electric flight and all the tech really helps even if you have RC flight experience. The old days of buy, build and crash was expensive and disappointing. This is soooooo much cheaper and the planes come home in one piece! It's fun to watch you as you learn different skills. Thanks for inspiration!

    Got my Grandson one of these – he was maybe 10 yrs old at that time. First flight, he flew it way too high and it went out of sight. We kept hitting the panic button and hoped for the best. After searching for about 1 hr, I found it sitting upright in the corner of a farmer's field about a half mile away. Not a scratch on it. This is a perfect beginner's plane.
