Ease of flying:

It pretty much flies itself, honestly. If it's at altitude, let of of the control and it will more-or-less level itself off and just glide. I started with almost no flight experience at all, and after my first weekend I am 100% confident in this.

Durability:

Could I give it 10 stars for this? The first day I had my radian, I let my room-mate fly it and he ran it full power straight into the ground. It broke into about 5 pieces. 10 minutes later we were back in the air flying again, I just glued it back together and it flies like a boss.

After that, I was teaching a little kid to fly it, and the same thing happened. Again, about 10 minutes later, we were back in the air. Just a bit of styrofoam glue and it's as good as the day it came out of the box (although the fuselage is about 1cm shorter than where it started [and a bit bent]).

The *third* time it got flown directly into the ground was my fault. I was trying to land it in a highly-trafficked area (stupid), and on too small of a spot (stupid). I tried to drop altitude too quickly, and could pull out of my dive. It hit a patch of grass and cracked...again.

This time, it didn't even take glue, I literally just taped it back together with orange duct tape...and it still flies without *any* problem.

The bottom line is that this is an absolutely awesome airplane. If you're looking for something to buy, this is definitely it.

Cons:

There really aren't many. I don't like the way that the wings go together...it feels like they're going to come apart mid-flight. I use a bit of tape on them for insurance, which hasn't failed me yet.

I also don't like the way that the horizontal stabilizer attaches to the frame...

This was my second plane, and it is a blast. It can nearly go vertical, glides like a feather, and can fly for up to ~50 minutes on one 1300mAh charge.

This plane is designed to be efficient, not durable. That being said, I wouldn't suggest it as a first plane. I've seen guys at the park crash it fairly softly and break the fuselage pretty bad.

A few things to be aware of:
1) This being a PNP (Plug-N-Play) model, you are expected to already have batteries, Tx, and Rx.
2) Make sure the nose is attached securely. Do not assume that since it came pre-built that the nose is secure. Mine came off in mid flight, never to be found again. Thankfully it did not fly off near the ground where it may have hurt someone.
3) The plane was a bit nose-heavy when I got it, so be sure to adjust the center of gravity as with any new plane.
4) It can go straight down faster than it can pull out, so until you get used to the plane's handling, get some altitude early.
5) Take off at about half throttle. Wide open throttle take-offs can cause you to lose control.

I've seen a couple people expecting a couple things that don't actually come in the box, so I made a video to help clear up the confusion.

If you are looking for a beginner plane to learn how to fly this is most definately a trainer plane. This is the most simple plane to fly that I purchased it just for the ease of assembly and to get airborne quickly. I love this plane and use it as my travel plane since it's quick and easy to assemble as well as durable. I've crashed a couple of times and have only lost the nut of the propeller, but nothing is broken. AWESOME!! is all I can say

I am a radio control glider flier for the last 15 years, and was the president of the Sacramento Valley Soaring society. My father was a pilot and I grew up with full scale aircraft.
I think it's fair to say that flying is in my blood. Enough of the introduction.
I have owned many radio controlled gliders, some I made myself, and some purchased.
This is hands down, one of the best.

I have never seen a more popular radio controlled glider at our club.
Lots of the guys/gals are winning competitions with these.

There are a few planes that are better suited to the beginner and kids, but once you get a little experience, they are not as interesting to fly, and have no where near the performance of this one.
My girlfriend was able to fly mine, fairly well the first time she tried it.
I recommend that you practice with one of the popular, RC flight simulators, made for home computers.
They really help you get the hang of it, before you fly the real thing.
(can save you money, by doing your beginner mistakes/crashes on the simulator, instead of the real thing, also great for rainy days)
If you are a first timer, I also recommend that you get an experienced flier, to help you get started. Most if not all RC airplane clubs, will happily help you out.

Weather you are a veteran flyer or a beginner, you will enjoy flying this plane.

Happy Landings

Probably one of the best beginner planes out there. Well made and has plenty of power and easy to fly, if you don't have a radio get the RTF version. One suggested upgrade is to buy the wing spare that comes with the Radian pro to reduce the flex of the wings, with this you will be quickly doing loops, inverted flying, figure 8s, and perfect landings. This glider floats in the air and is very stable even in wind! I highly recommend this glider for first RC experience and more advanced flyers will enjoy it's smooth flight characteristics.
