Glad to hear it. Those 3 channel planes you're flying there are great starters, and will get you guys the feel for flight, and learn with.
I will also give you guys the unofficial FliteTest mantra: "Build - Fly - Crash - Repeat!" Don't get disheartened if you guys crash, just try to learn from it and go from there. And remember, if it crashes, rebuilding it might be just a couple of bucks in foamboard!
