Sure. Don't know what your previous flying experience is, but the Simple Cub (with standard control throws) can be a handful at first. If you're using it as a trainer you can dial down the ailerons and rudder for the first couple flights (I think my ailerons are 1/2 the low gauge setting) to make it more "cub-like". I plan on using expo settings at some point and adding flaperons into the mix (about 1/2 flap) for landing. I don't need any help with take-offs, with the B pack motor, a 9x4.7 APC prop and 1000mah battery this thing can take off in a couple of feet on grass (I'm using Timber 1.5M wheels).
