Since you have been flying for five years, you obviously don't need a beginner's trainer. It would help if you provided some information as to what you want and what your budget is. Do you want an RTF, PNP, ARF or Kit? Do you want a warbird, an aerobatic plane or something with a lot of speed? Is wind a big consideration? How big is your flying field? Ground take-offs and landings or handlaunches and bellyflop landings?

For a good starting point, check out the E-flite MiniUltraStick PNP and the Spectrum radio.

I have the MUS and fly it with my DX7. Great combination for some sport flying.

For an experience glow pilot, the Mini Ultra Stick would be an excellent choice. Get the PNP version, just add your receiver and batteries and you are sll set to go.

Or, get the RTF ParkZone F27C stryker. 70 mph right out of the box. You will love it!

Or RTF Parkzone Typhoon.

There are hundreds of kits, ARFS and RTFs.
