If it gets turned over it will just flip and crash, it's farily high speed stable so it's not all that easy to flip to flat and it's not very versatile so it's difficult to learn to throw different lines with it. It's a lot easier to learn by figuring out how to throw kind of well and then improve incrementally than it is to just be awesome from the get-go.
Thank you, that was the reasoning I was looking for. So I'll nix the TB.

Also thank you. I was looking at the TB in the way someone who has experience playing would, and what it could do to help that person. I neglected to look at it in the way that a newbie would.
So, on the other side - no misgivings about the roc or aviar, right?
