In my short tenure with e-gliders, the wide flight envelope is what attracted me first, fairly slow landing and low sink rates(almost hard to land, meaning you have to extend your "landing" pattern sometimes two-fold), but still able to zoom around and yank/bank if you wanna and able to fly in a little more wind.
This would be same for me. Although the wide envelope can be a con because the Phoenix is not portable by no means. I am thinking of a mod to make the wings a bit easier to remove for transport. You aint kidding about the landing pattern I have almost hit myself as it keeps gliding buy.

You aint kidding with a lot to learn and I am eager to soak it all in and at least you have made to base camp I am still at the bottom going which way do i go? LOL

Currently I am using 3s 1800MAH. They are batteries I had and use in other models as well and I think that type of battery is a good average battery for most planes at least the ones in my fleet anyway
