I'll assume he's flown Steve - otherwise he's in for a pretty hard time learning on a 3D bird. Although looking here:

maybe not so..

Foam is your friend - EPP foam is your BEST friend. Think "what will bounce". MS Composits used to make a great EPP 3D plane, don't think it's still out there. Learn to glue parts back on with foam safe CA in the field.

What kind of radio do you have?

I think it was the MS "Blade Dancer" that my brother in law had. We both tried our best to kill it. Managed to eventually - but took quite a while. Currently I have a hand cut "Teriyucki" that a buddy did for me from Blucor. Flies a lot better - but no where near as resiliant.

Was a good bird. The nose and tail were a bit shorter once it finally went to that Final Great Inverted Flat Spin in the sky

Thanks Hank for clarifying what 3D flying is. I intend to get into that type of flying when I get a few hours of "timid" flying under my belt. James 7148

To answer the original question: The Airfoilz Extra 300NX on low rates flies like a trainer when set up correctly. However, the last part of that sentence is crucial: As a beginner, you'll need someone to help you set it up and balance it right.
