Question Flying the elipstik

How would you rate this plane as far as the flying skills needed? Easy? moderate? Difficult?

which one The 260, 460 or 700 Balanced properly, it looks to be a Easy Plane to fly normally the smaller the plane, the more difficult it is to fly, but not always. this plane looks to be a Puddy-cat to fly

460 or 700. usually the bigger the aircraft the easier it is tt fly. However I don't know if that rule applies to FWs as well.

like any wing, they are pitch sensitive. use the recommended CG, a little motor (3/4 stick) and it'll fly right out of your hand.
no real bad habits with this wing. i haven't had a single tip stall. as a matter of fact, it's will catch some ground effect and glide for a few meters longer than expected.

That's pretty much what I hear about 'real' (as in piloted) flying wings. As well as models.
