Default After 30 years I want to fly again

Hi ! [8D]
Ime 43 and and after 30 years I want to fly again. I flew as a kid and gained my proficiency wings at 12 in Wagga Wagga Australia.
Visiting my Dad regularly interstate, I flew , powered fixed wing and helicopters,occasionally.
Dad was a dedicated modeller.
I would like an electric Piper Cub, but have never flown electric before.
Any suggestions on model choice would be appreciated.

Two models spring to mind:

1. Hobby Lobby's Graupner Mini Piper
2. Great Planes ElectriCub

The Mini Piper might be a better choice for rusty skills.
