Default which plane to get?

I would like to get into rc flying, I will not use an instructor. which one of these plane do you recommend for a first time user without instructor.

1- HobbyZone Aerobird Xtreme 3ch.
2- HobbyZone commander 2ch.
3- Shun Da ACCIPITER BADIUS 3ch. http://www.egrandbuy.com/rarecoplrcai.html
4- Shun Da J3 cub 3ch http://www.egrandbuy.com/3j3cubpirare.html
5- Shun Da SKY HAWK 3ch http://www.egrandbuy.com/skyha3rareco.html

if you recommend another plane please let me know.

I would like my first plane to be RTF and under $150.
also do you think i should start with 2ch or 3ch plane.

thank you

Actually I would suggest a Slow Stick to learn by yourself some of those you list are just to fast and makes learning harder. Another problem is you can't use the equipment on any other planes so you will end up actually spending more. I have seen Slow Stick kits for as low as $195 on the web.

Given your choices I would go with the Sky Hawk, I like the way it looks better. Plus it is on sale for $75.

In general, it's considered bad form to post the exact same question in multiple forums. For those reading, here's a link to the first one: http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=3357611

And that folding prop will come in handy as you learn
