Default best plane for park 450 bl outrunner

Hello all
I have the above motor with 20a speedo and 3 cell lipo (1800mah). I am looking for a good trainer aircraft to put these electrics into that can be hand launched. I have flown a Thunderbolt but it was too much of a handful and crashed in spectacularly hence why I have the spare electrics.
I am so confused with the 1000's of planes out there, any advice would be greatly appreciated

The Mini Ultra Stick flies wonderfully with the Park 450, it is a very well made ARF. Search the forums. especially the electric forums for other opinions.
If you set it up right and slow down the controls it flies very nicely.

When you use full power and large control travel it is capable of breathtaking aerobatics. You can see it here & other places on the net.

You must find an good instructor to get comfortable flying a responsive aircraft or even a "trainer". Some time on a simulator would also be very beneficial. Teaching yourself is learning the hard way. Joining a local club is often a good way to find a good instructor pilot.

Best wishes

The GWS Slow Stick may be just the ticket, very stable and cheap, $21.00 from Tower Hobbies on this side of the pond with no power plant (they call it the glider version) Though for training purposes you may want consider using a 2S lipo at first.
Good luck,
