Introduction
« on: November 11, 2017, 20:28:36 PM »
I am retired and tried RC flying about 10 yrs ago.

 I was disheartened by the number of crashes so I gave up the hobby.

I have a trainer almost finished in balsa and a foam glider never flown.

I live in West Somerset. I have seen a web site and utube videoa from Andrew Newton an Australian showing a 3 channel foam pusher trainer which looks very durable. I am going to have a go at building it. I am hoping I can maybe teach myself to fly again

Hello and welcome.
Check out aany local clubs. You can usually get instruction and hopefully it will mean less crashes.

Look on B.M.F.A. site, find a local club, really would be the best way to learn to fly, your going to waste a lot of time and money if you don't as you have in previous attempts by the sound of it, from your post you already have two aircraft which would be great to learn to fly with a little instruction at a local club. :study:
Take off optional --- landing essential..

Ditto. Look in to a simulator if tuition is difficult to find. Failing all that, I hate to say this, but the current trend to 'safe' flying models could get you on the right track.
