After having learnt the rudiments of RC flying on a high wing, this is one of the best trainers one can come across. It is also possible to start learning to fly with this model (but it is highly recommended to start with a high wing trainer).
I have extensively flown this model for approximately more than 150 flights, and was waiting for the air frame to break apart in the air, but no it never complained and did what was asked from it. Any engine from 46 to 55 suits the model fine and standard servos (I used my trusty Futaba 148's) serve the purpose all round.
If you are in the market looking for a rugged trainer, and intermediate aerobatics air frame the Scanner is highly recommended. You would love this one, In fact I am seriously considering to get another one for my Sunday hack
