Default imput on best 4 channel cessna type plane

Hi all!!! stated on a skyfly learned to fly on it even with those lame throws. next was a parkzone ember loved it and gave it to my son . next was an ember fun little plane had 2 servo is now striped out. now i'm kinda bored of 3 channel and i'm thinking of going 4 and a larger more open spaced plane.. i;m thlooking at the flyzone cessna skylane select that just came out.... the price seems steep to me at 249.00 and i also don;t like the sound of the name FOAM in the construction of the plane, dont get me wrong i know alot of planes have foam wings like my skyfly and i have like 10 of them in the garage.. anyway what better place to get imput and links and such than right here!!!!
THANKS FOR ANY IMPUT YOU GIVE.... as always hooked on flyin!!!

Well, I love my Multiplex Mini-mag. Yes, it is foam, but the toughest foam you ever saw. I'd by the bare bones kit ad add your own LIPO; ESC; and BL motor. Build it with ailerons, of course. Great flier and has a fine following on many of the sites. Rich

Well, If you crash a balsa model, you probably can fix it, but it will take some time and effort.

If you "lawn dart" the better-made foam planes, a little medium-heat hot-melt-glue/epoxy/gorilla glue etc. and you can fly again on the same day. I only had one balsa/ply plane. One crash ( operator error) and it hangs in my shop needing a new front end. My MM, however.... has taken the worst I can throw at it ( a lot) and it flies nearly every time out. Have fun. Hope you find what you are looking for.... regards, rich

p.s. Please do not under-estimate the number of times new fliers can crash a plane while learning. Don't ask me how I know that!!! Ha Ha
