    First Plane

    Hey everyone, I’m new here I just bought the Simple Storch kit a few weeks ago for my first ever plane. I got it all together and it flew a little rough the first time but after some repairs (from a crash) and some tuning, it now flys like a charm and I just ordered two more kits.
