Default Which plane after Hobyzone CHAMP (micro plane)

Hi,

I'am new to this hobby and I have been trainning with my Champ plane (3ch) in the park near my home and with my Real Flight G5.5 similator (every day since one week)

Now I want to move up and go to a flight zone (15 min away from home) with a new plane with aileron (4 ch)

So what is the best next step for me.

1) Another mico plane : Parkzone Micro T28 trojan that I can still not fly in wind situation.
2) The Parkzone T28 trojan (the 44"" wings)
3) The E-flite Apprentice with some problem with the original motor ("that's what I have read" )
4) or something else......


Thank's for your help and time

The Apprentice or for less money, the Hobbyzone Super Cub (no ailerons) and easy to fly.

A plane with aileron is a must for me at this point. So beside the Apprentice is there any other good plane for me. Also, Is the T-28 too much to handle (the 44" wings T-28)?

My son and I were flying the Micro T-28 in about 10 MPH winds today, it was a little slow on the upwind leg, but tons of fun. He also flies the (44") Trojan and I can say with much confidence that plane will take a complete beating and keep flying. We goof off with it alot, and as a result it is close to 50% gorilla glue and 50% foam.  The larger one needs a lot more room to fly though. We sometimes fly the micro in the cul-de-sac infront of our home.
