Default Light Wind and Grass Trainer

I will get delivered an Eflite Apprentice S 15e (3lbs weight) today and it should be a better plane for him. I reckon that he can handle it at low throttle in 5mph or less winds.
We will know next week how well it flys for him.

I know this is sort of an older thread, but since I started flying a park flyer with tricycle gear, the past issues I had with nose-overs (takeoff and / or landing) are gone.

Thing is, you'll have to build the park flyer I'm currently flying.

This is your plane. My buddy Bill got his and he tends to crash often and he is capable of flying it well in some pretty strong wind:

This is Bill's Maiden

This is Bil's Second Flight

It is easy to fly and pretty forgiving even in fairly strong wind (there are limits of course).

A Park zone sport cub s2 is a great bush plane for grass and handles winds too.

That plane, which I own and the Tundra, several friends own that one, are both excellent options. The Timber is a really nice flying option too.

Long story short, you can't go wrong with either plane. The Timber and Tundra both have more power, if that is important to you.
