If they still make them get a Midwest Aero Star with a fully semetrical wing. I got one off of Ebay for $125 shipped.

goldberg falcon 3 has a semi semetrical wing. there are also a few good other high wing with semetrical or semi semetrical wings. look at the specs. the semi semetrical will be a little faster than the trainer flat bottom wing. the full semetrical will be a hand full.

The Kyosho Calmato high wing comes with surfaces hinged and hinges glued. Horns installed. Motor mount installed. One of the most ARF models you'll ever see. Better than a few RTFs almost.

Unfortunately, you do need to run an iron over all it's seams first and then everywhere else. But that's easy and especially if you do it first thing.

It's a good light 46size. And flies very nicely. And will do everything you'll want to do with your 2nd airplane.

The one in the picture was done last year. Behind it is a Tiger that was shelved for a Calmato Sport low wing that flew slightly better.

You might consider an Avistar. Semisym wing and with a 46 up front will do all the basic aerobatics.

I'll second the Sky Raider Mk I - good flying plane that will be able to perform all the aerobatics you'll want to fly for a while, and with the throws reduced makes a gentle flyer - it's a great second plane.

+1 on the Sky Raider. A very well-engineered plane, goes together in a few hours and you can't beat the price.
