We have a brand new flyer late summer, yes we were there on the first landings etc till he soon got the feel for flight, then landed etc on his own. Infact his Super Cub is nearly intact, other than a little crack on his cowling.

Point I'm making is seek an experienced pilot, your likely to keep the original model flying and less stress on the learning curve.

Infact have a brief video clip on his earlier take off just missing a low tree, and then starting to stall over midfield, then he levels off and flys ! Perhaps luck helps as well, flys much better now and actually still in disbelief how well he's done, great Job there Jim ! Was fighting some winds as well !

Clip Jim's early flights:
