I think the airplane mix will be best then.
Ailerons on the wings and elevator on the canard.

correct but the canard is just flat / stable doesn't have controls. So just elevon's on the main wing.

How high can you go? Please note how you did it and whether its FPV or LOS.

Here's my quad up to about 500' LOS. I'm running APM2.5 in Loiter mode:

Re: FPV ground testing prior to crashing

definitely, a must. some radio's have a servo test mode, so that you can program a channel to sweep a servo back and forth while doing your test. also keep in mind a car may cause interference, so you may want to actually get out of the car once you run out of range to see if you can go further.

Re: Newbie wants fpv

you need to learn orientation to run with the big dogs. if your trying to do fpv, a beginner really needs to be able to fly from 3rd person view before they jump into fpv.

one good thing about multiwii is you can use head tracking mode. which may help or may just totally mess you up.
