Default What to do

I am desperatley wanting an electric rc airplane that is easy for beginers I've gone through so much toy crap at tru (about 10 different planes) and only the aero aces work for me. The biplane AA sucks but the jet AA and new AA ROCK!!! (especialy the new one!) If anyone knows of a good electric rc plane that comes with everithing you need in the kit ( ex. charger, plane, transmiter....) for under 200 dollars, could you post a link and tell me where to get it. If anyone could help i'd appreciate it. Thanks

Electrolight

Do a search on the forums and you will see many positives on it.

Try the Wing Dragon from Hobby-Lobby - both the 3ch and the 4ch trainers are well under $200. The 3ch is on sale right now for $89. I have been teaching myself on the 3ch and it has worked exceptionally well. Plus, all the radio gear can be moved to different plane. There are a few good reviews that you can link to from the Hobby-Lobby page.

There are a lot of good beginner planes available, but the HobbyZone SuperCub (my recommendation) and the Multiplex EasyStar are probably the two best and most popular. If you prefer handlaunching and belly-flop landings like the AeroAce, go with the EasyStar. If you want to get into ground launching and controlled landings, go with the SuperCub.

You might also find these notes on learning to fly RC useful (there's some notes about different planes for beginners in there too):
