Since that plane has standard, straight non-swept wings it's easy. Set the CG to 1/4 of the distance from the leading edge about 1" from the fuse and fly it. Put it into a 45 degree upline and flip...

Trainers DO get boring once you've got your flying figured out, but that's OK, because a pile of crushed balsa would have been even more boring. :)

I guess I didn't get the memo about Spektrum being bad, because I have at least 20 planes, ranging from tiny foamies to 120cc giant scale gassers flying on Spektrum. :)
