Default RE: Suggestions for a trainer plane

ORIGINAL: stallwart

Like samolot, I think a high wing RTF is the way to go at first.
I don't. I agree that high wing trainers are a good choice, but I don't endorse the RTFs for the average person getting started. For about the same money, a careful shopper can base their starter setup off an ARF trainer and get much better components than one gets with an RTF setup. Assembling an ARF will also give the beginner valuable experience installing all of the components. It's important to begin building these skills on the trainer plane because it will make assembly of the second plane significantly easier.
