    I'm certainly not a professional, but why do I need such a plane at all? Who is it and most importantly how to train? According to its corny flight characteristics, it is far from even 3rd generation aircraft. Here is an example of an American aircraft of the 3rd generation, its characteristics are twice or even 3 higher than that of this training https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vought_F-8_Crusader well, if you only learn to fly on corn kernels, yes

      The basics of piloting are necessary for beginner pilots to comprehend. Work out take-off, landing, flight, etc.

    A good machine, nice, and in case of a small price it will have its own niche and buyers, the presence of external suspension nodes implies the possibility of using it as a light attack aircraft

    Red Bull inspires?)) Outwardly looks pretty. To know what the handling characteristics are. For a "flying desk" flight stability and ease of control are extremely important. There is a suspicion that if it flies well, soon it will be possible to see a single variant in the "Red Bull air race".
