    Sorry to say that the plane is flimsy and underpowered. It needs a good wind to provide lift or it just won't fly. Many of those electric planes are made to be very light at the expense of strength and size. I have seen some high performance electric planes but they would be too fast and frisky for someone to learn on. Most flyers start with a 60 to 70" glow powered plane and then switch to epowered planes after if they want to slow things down. If you are stuck with e powered planes then maybe look into a plane called a Zagi. They fly well and the material that they are made of is pretty tough.:D
