Default Best beginner aircraft...

I'm sure this has been covered here numerous times..but I'm somewhat in the dark on R/C aviation..

I'm a commercial pilot by trade, but I'm thinking of getting into R/C airplanes as another hobby.

I've been told (even in pilot training) flying R/C is harder than flying a real airplane... and with all of the automatic pilot equipment we have I'm sure they're right.

I am thinking learing to fly R/C is almost the same as learning to fly the real deal...starting with a high wing, slower speed airplane to get a feel for the controls and flight in general..

Any input is helpful.
