Default RE: All around fun-fly plane

These are planes I have seen at the field that fit the criteria of being pretty inexpensive. The first two are available as ARF or Kit. I built the Uproar 60 and really like it.
Great Planes Dazzler 40 ARF or Kit
Tower Hobbies Uproar 40 ARF or Kit
World Models Sky Raider Mach II ARF
Tower Hobbies Uproar 60 Kit
Another inexpensive ARF that might be worth a look is the Phoenix Dolphin ARF. I have never seen one at the field.

If price is not part of the criteria:
Goldberg Tiger (ARF/Kit, 40 or 60 size)
Sig Four Star 40 or 60 (ARF or Kit)
Big Stik
Ultra Stick
Lots of possibilities...

I think any of these can be a "second plane" after you know how to fly. I personally wouldn't want any of them as a primary trainer.
