Default Second plane, First aileron trainer

I have recently started flying a T-hawk and was thinking about getting a second plane with ailerons. I came up with what i think is just about the "perfect plane" for my needs.

I like this plane because
1. it is a pusher prop, and I really liked that about the T-hawk
2. the wing has a dihedral making it nice and steady.
3. price

I was wondering if anyone had experience with this plane or has another plane that they could suggest as my first aileron plane.
I already have a spectrum DX6 radio, so I don't particular mind about the radio it comes/ does not come with.

Glad to see a car guy get into planes You guys usually don't take as long to learn as a complete noobie to RC. If you think you are going to get more serious with planes, my suggestion is a Parkzone t-28 bnf. It's a great flying plane, tough, easy to repair , and easy to get parts for. Will work fine with your Tx. Comes with everything else you would need. The price is quite a bit different from the plane you linked, but you probably get what you pay for. Horizon's customer support is great, and the PZ t-28 would be a better choice if you think you will be moving up to more advanced planes or nitro power.

Any nitro engine I run should not be in the air haha.
I looked into the T-28 bnf, and i found a T-28 PNP. Is the PNP the same as the BNF except it doesn't have a receiver, battery and charger? I already have lots of receivers and lipo's due to other hobbies.
The place where I fly has no landing strip and fairly high grass, so if I belly land the plane will that damage the prop?
Anyone else with a suggestion?

Yes.  PNP is a radioless and batteryless version of the kit.  Belly landing is not only possible but very popular with those who land on grass.

The plane at the link you provided looks good.  Can't say if it is a good quality package or if it flies well but it looks like it could be good.

Another option, is to add ailerons to the Super Cub.
I spent about $100 converting my SC over to 2.4 GHz Spektrum receiver, and new servos and ESC.
Truly a learning experience.
A little paint helps, too.
The ailerons look funny because I was messing around setting them up as flaperons. They are a little too far up for flaps in this pic.
