the original owner told me he bought it new and only attempted to fly it once and crashed it the only damage to it seems to be the rudder it is creased were the control horn attaches making it not work properly. I was thinking of removing the control horn and doubling up the styrofoam using ahamburger tray peice because it is thin but strong.this is what cox recomended for repairs in the original manual with it.

the. 020 motor was the only thing missing from the purchace.I put the one and only cox. 020 I previosly owned to see how it is.I noticed it seemed quite heavy maybe thats why people had trouble with them! Its a winter project anyway even if it just ends up on display.does anyone have a comment on how good the cox sky ranger electric is for learning on?looks impresive on small movie clips

Hey Craig,

Not sure what your budget is like, but you might consider one of the larger models as a trainer.  The Sig series of Kadets and smaller Senioritas are excellent trainers, and are regulars at Swap Meets, along with the Goldberg "Eaglet" Trainers.  I've seen some beautiful examples with price ranges in the 60-70 buck range (plane and engine), and with older new-in-the-box radio sets going for about the same. So, you'd be a little over the 130 dollar mark or so with accessories. 

As much as I love the small planes, a larger "Floater" trainer-type gives a fledgling pilot a lot more time to think and react, and will accelerate the learning process by leaving out a good bit of the mental trauma.  Once a trainer is properly trimmed (INCLUDING the amount of power the engine delivers!), it's much like a friendly old horse that gently turns where you point him.

Also, after you become proficient with them, trainers are great for Odd-Jobs like banner or flag towing and launching the occasional hand-launched glider!

As before, with others, it's an extremely good idea to get some direction from a trained pilot.

Just a thought...
