Default lookin for new electric?

I'm tired of the whole nitro thing. I have plenty of flying experience so that is not an issue. I also understand brushless lipo combo. So for around $300-400 price range help me decide a plane and setup before my head explodes from trying to decide myself! Not listed in any specific order.


1) e-flite extra 260

2) great planes edge 540

3) great planes reactor

4) mini funtana

5)3d hobby shop 42" yellow slick

6)E-Flite Sukhoi SU-26m

After reading forever, I decided to go with the e-flite sukhoi , eflite 480 , 40 amp pro esc, 3s 2200 lipo gp nano servos. Please lmk if this will be a suffitient setup for some mild 3d and pattern flying.

Good.  I was going to vote for the 3DHS Slick.  I'm sure you will enjoy the Sukhoi.

At some point, take a look at the Mini Ultra Stick.  This is a cool little plane.  Add recevier and battery and you are ready to fly.

I'll second aea's comment.  The E-Flite sticks are truly amazing.  I have the Ultra Stick 25e.  Not only is it stable and easy to fly but it does anything any aerobatic model will do except look pretty.  Pure function, no form.  Amazing flyers.
