It really depends on what kind of flying characteristics you want. They are all good flyers.

You don't have to buy servos. The planes you listed actually don't use servos they use proportional actuators which are much cheaper then our the servos. ($170 for everything to get the Mini Sport in the air including the kit) The receivers don't require a "special" transmitter and use any FM aircraft transmitter so if you are already flying planes you have a transmitter that will work with the receviers.

i have a tx and i knew about the actuators im thinking of going with the liddle bug because none of the other planes say the wing area and loading but the bug has a wing loading of 2.38 is that good enought? how slow will it fly? i mainly just want a slow and small plane. i saw that the liddle bug had a fake engine and wheel pants i was thinking of removing them to lightening it up and mabe make it a stick kind of thing. on the web site they have a electronics package with a wieght of 16 grams ive looked on a few of other sites and this one seems to be the lightest is there any other one thats lighter?

mecevans,
The Liddle Bug with the equipment from www.smallrc.com is a very stable, docile flyer. Here is link to video of one built and flown by Tim Wolff and as you can see it easily flies within a gymnasium.

Hope this helps.

mecevans,
Sorry it took so long to answer you. I thought I had subscribed to this thread but I didn't receive any emails that someone had posted here. Anyway the LiddleBug flys extremely well on the stock setup you really don't need to lighten it up although you can if you feel the need. Personally my recommendation would be to go with the stock setup to get you introduced to Micro R/C and then experiment with lightening things up if you feel the need. If you go the the LiddleBug kit we have the option for a complete flight pack for it that you can select while ordering.

Regards,
Dan
