Wow, what a wide open question.

I would suggest that you go Hobby Lobby's site and look at all the different electric planes they have. They will also list the recommended ESC's, batteries, etc. so you'll have an idea of what needed for each plane.

Of course, they aren't the only people selling planes, but at least you can get a good idea of what's on the market, prices, general info, etc.

get the wattage hawk this lil plane cost 49 bux you get the motor prop and every thing except the esc servos and reciver/transmitter but they sell that on the same site. I recommend this plane because i owned it and its fast like a gass powered plane it dose about 50 mph with the motor that comes with it. the link is the hobbypeople.net link just go through the planes and you will find wattage Miro glider aka wattage hawk. there is another wattage hawk but its the turbo hawk its a edf version of the hawk

First, it's "know" and "to." This isn't IRC.

Second, what do you mean by this statement? We can't tell you what plane to get because we don't know what you like to fly, or what your skill level is. Do you like to build? Do you like ARFs? Can you even fly at all? Without knowing WHAT you want "2" fly we can't tell you what "2" get!!!

well in my opinion he isnt being too appreciative of other people helping him...two people suggested things and all he has to say is "what i need to no is what 2 get." Perhaps he needs to show some gratitude and some simple manners. He is probably all of about 13.
