The Air Hogs Aeroace is one of the best 2 channel under $50 dollar planes out there. It is $30 bucks and can be bought at Target, Toys R us, Walmart, and other such places. I wouldn't advise walmart because they sell it for $40 instead of $30.

It has the same controls as the Firebird but uses a lipo battery for much longer flight times. There are other really nice 30 dollar planes like the Preserver but it doesn't have the foam construction of the AA. The AA's wings can be bent in almost any direction (I wouldn't advise it, but I've done it so...)

I would rec the AA or the Preserver. Both fly very well in a space like a basketball gym or other indoor spots. (Not your house though...) The Aero Ace can fly in a space the size of a COMPLETELY EMPTY 2 car garage. I would recomend a gym depending on which even though you may only use half of the court.

next time you go to the Wmart ,target ,toys are us don't pass up the Estes flying rangers ,4 different , p-52, f4u, p-47, and me-109 also a series of sport types but bottom line $29.99 with r/c installed . The LHS may carry the same Estes types without the r/c gear installed for $19.99 install your own gear to your hearts delight. And they are good indoor fliers.

I second that. A.A. Keep the box insert that it comes in and keep it to store your plane in, I keep mine in the truck of my car 'just in case" i have and emergency craving to fly. I put small wheels just behind the on/off switch

Don't go with the Estes stuff. The only thing those are good for is looking decent. Sure, you could buy an Estes, gut it, and insert AA electronics. But I don't think you would want to do that.

Go with the AA, you'll be very happy with it.
