Default Have equip, need plane recommendation

Hello! I'm new to the Forum. I had my first rc experience in the late 70s with sailplanes. Got back into the hobby a little bit 10 years ago, building another sailplane and purchased a Futaba 4 Channel and 2 servos. I would now like to get into electric powered RC planes. I'm hoping that I can save a little money by using my Futaba and two servos . Can anyone recommend an ARF or RTF plane for a powered flight newbie that I can use my Futaba and servos with? Many thanks in advance!

Assuming your radio and servos are good, take your pick of any .40 size ARF and put an electric system in it. Of course, you could spend less money on a smaller plane and not bother with your servos. A great Trainer is the Hobbico Avister Elite.

Is your radio only a two chan? If it's a four channel, you can add servos..
