| What do you think happens to all dem planes on Ebay and in toy shops ?:
They fly for 15 seconds, then crash.
| You rarely see them at clubs.
No, you don't normally see crashed planes at clubs. You might see a
plane crash, but once it crashes it doesn't usually come back until
it's repaired. Of course, if you just buy a plane and crash it 15
seconds later, often it's never repaired, even if repairable ...
Some clubs are also hostile to the small electric planes. However,
the local glow club was quite fascinated by my Ultrastick 25e -- it's
not that big, but it's still the biggest electric that many of them
had seen. And it flew very nicely ...
I do understand that you can teach yourself to fly with the right
plane (slow, foam, prop in back, simulator time) but any sort of
instruction greatly assists the process.
