  1. I’d say my 2nd hand launch that went vicretle, was 60 to 70 Climb in the air before it stalled. which gave me time to recover. I have 6 flights and have 6 not so perfect landings, You cansee deep grooves in the clear epoxy coating i coated landing and scrape areas. the landings would of had more of and effect on the foam, Take the time follow the steps and cover all vital areas with epoxy. This would be a tuff plane for a new pilot, but toothpiks? and epoxy go a long way with foam. NICE PLANE
