Hello, How are you ? My name is Mike, How can I help you have an R/C good time ?
Just starting to research options for my Dad, and curious what's a good model for a newbie?
Dad is turning 80 and used to admire these when we were kids but could never afford it...

Without prior flying experience , i would recommend a top wing. let me grab one
this is a great beginner package '
Everything is included to get flying , it has SAFE which helps a new polite learn to fly
I notice the write-up mentions an instructor...I doubt he'll be able to find one...he lives on one of the smaller islands in Hawaii. How necessary is an instructor?
Michael D.
NOt at all with this plane, it almost has one built in , it has 3 flight modes to teach the pilot,. and a panic button to correct the plane if it gets turned around , saves from crashing
nice! thanks! Can you ship to Hawaii?
Michael D.
Yes we can, you will see your shipping options at checkout
This package does include a lipo battery , so i am not sure if that will hinder it or not. Checkout will tell you the options
OK. Great. Will discuss with sibling and come back. You've been so helpful - thanks!
Michael D.
My pleasure, Have a great night :-)
