I solo'ed on an Apprentice and I've posted a picture of mine below. It doesn't look like yours. It is one of the best trainers on the market. Find a club and hook up with an instructor. There is no better way to learn to fly.

Surging, as you experienced, is sometimes due to the ESC reaching low voltage cutoff - a feature designed to keep lipo batteries from discharging and getting ruined. Most ESC's go into the surging rather than just stop. It tells you you went too far on that battery. The ESC's in the RTF planes aren't of the best quality either. If you can find something, try substituting another ESC.

Good luck. Here's what my Apprentice looks like today.
