I started with the Parkzone Decathlon. I would suggest any of the three channel Parkzone planes. The pod and boom planes like the red hawk are ok but do not add the skills that you need to progress in the hobby. Same with the aero scout. The best thing to do is go to a local hobby shop and ask them. If those are the only planes you are willing to buy go with the CC flyer. But IMHO I would try to find one of the Parkzone planes b/c they fly good, you can find parts at any hobbyshope, and they are reasonably priced.

None of the planes that you listed are particularly good, but the Red Hawk will give you the best flights. If you budget is limited to $100, get the SkyFly. If you can swing an extra $9, get the Aerobird Challenger for $109, which looks similar to the RedHawk, but is a much better plane than any of the ones mentioned.

The best beginner plane is the SuperCub, but that will run you $160. Nearly as good is the EasyStar, which will run you $180.
