Shopper conversation with Joe C. on July 27, 2016

Joe C.
Hello! How may I assist your shopping experience? Did you have a question about the edge?
Hello, I'm interested in this plane. However; I have no experience with planes. I do have a Nano QX 3D that I fly very well. I also have a Walkera F210. Is this something that I could fly? Without destroying it immediately?
Joe C.
probably not
planes are different than quads
you may get the basic flight orientation, but the landing will be a challenge-- and that is where most mishaps happen
I would recommend something with SAFE
like the apprentice, or maybe even the visionaire if you want to start out with an aerobatic plane
that flies good and offers a panic button
have youseen the night visionaire?
No, not yet
Joe C.
letme show you
yes that's it
Thank you! Saved me from cleaning up a lot of blue foam, ha!
Joe C.
your'e welcome, I think you'll like it
it's relatively light yet still responsive, and the SAFE is great
Thank you!
Joe C.
you're welcome
