Default Intermediate Plane

I've been flying nitro airplanes for about 2 years, and i am looking for a good electric plane that i can do some aerobatics with but still be able to fly in limited space. Am also looking at spending around 300$. Any suggestions are appreciated.

wood or foam ok? does that budget include a new charger for lipo support? you need 3d power or more traditional aerobatics ok? are you looking for an ARF and parts suggestion or just rtf to give it a try?

Check out the EFlite kits from Horizon. The Mini Ultra Stik and the Mini Pulse are especially good. If you want larger, they have a Cub and another Ultra Stik, the 25E. I have three of the four and they are great flyers.

Re-reading your post, Check out the "Plug and Play" versions of the Mini Ultra Stik and Mini Pulse. They sell for around $200 and include the ESC, motor and servos.
