I really don't like differential thrust models...

You have limited yaw authority
You re very likely to be needing both high power + turning at the same time but if you apply full right/left and full throttle at the same time you have half power.

They are cheap... they are relatively easy to keep in the air (because its hard to turn them radically enough that they won't self-recover)
But you won't learn much from them and there is a very limited (or no) ability to use the same equipment in future models.

If you crashed it badly enough to need replacement and have that kind of space requirement you probably would be well off to just get a replacement until you have your flying chops down better.

If you're going to learn to fly them, you have to learn to fix them.

I did a trim flight for some kids last week with the Duet and I was impressed with the way it handled. The wind was low so what Fhuber is saying may be true with more wind. If you are a beginner and you are using full power and full rudder you are in trouble. The kids hauled the plane around in very tight circles and it was no problem.

Flying is like ... ah well ... I can not think of anything it is like...
