The TwinBat flies! It's under-powered though, which is surprising as it's got twice the motors. :) I'm gonna prop it up and see if that doesn't help a bit.

The only downside to a glider such as, say, the Radian (a great plane) is that they take a lot of room to land (especially when you're new). I fly my Slow Stick out of smaller fields than I'd ever...
