    It looks interesting but I'm not sure how the controls work. The info says you change direction by using the motors, so I assume there are no flight controls. I can't imagine this is much more than a fancy freew flight model of limited range. I'd save my money if it were up to me.

    Don't buy a plane from wal-mart. Those aircraft are not fully functional and will not help you become a better flyer. If you want to start cheap, then start with a plane from hobbyzone. You'll spend about $100 to $200 bucks and get an a/c that is really worth it for beginners. My recomendation is the areobird or the areobird extreme. Those have 3 channels so you will get just about the best learning you can get. Plus on models with a fourth channel your only adding a rudder so going up to one is easier.

    save money for at least a $200 plane. you can get one that is durable, yet fully controlled, like alirons, flaps, rudder, just everything, and it will not handle alot better, and you can actually learn off it. megatech has a nice starter airplane, its a trainer almost, not gas, electric, and it included everything from A-Z for $199.99, not to shabby I say.

    Joshua,
    Those are some famous final words, bud. This isn't a hobby to rush into....if you do you usually get what you pay for. I know I did in my first go-around.....I bought something like this and it had differential steering where one motor speeded up to turn the plane and both speeded up or slowed down to make it go up or down. If it doesn't sound like you have a lot of control it's because you DON'T! Trust me....I know it's frustrating.....but wait....it'll be worth it to get a better setup in the long and short term....short because it will be repairable and have parts support and long because you'll be able to use whatever setup you buy initially either a) to equip your next plane or b) when sold, to help finance your next plane......gee.....does it sound like I've been there? *chuckle*
