Default Low wing electric prop foamie to learn with?

Howdy, gents.... Masterguns here with another question. Which type of electric prop foamie low wing do you think would be a good baseline plane to use to get used to low wing characteristics again? 3S minimum. Obviously there aren’t many low wing basic trainers. I’m just looking for something relatively inexpensive which would limit the size. I have all the electronics other know how needed to get one in the air. It could be a war bird like the T-28 or Slow Poke type or something fairly forgiving until I get used to their characteristics. I’m just a general flight RC pilot with no specific expertise right now. Thinking too much into this?

All I own that’s low wing now is the 64mm Arrows Marlin EDF trainer put away for future use. Not worried too much about a super scale down to the last rivet. Just something I won’t loose sleep over if I crash it. I’m too used to high wing types. Tri or tail dragger? Retract or flaps? Maybe something from Hobby King? That would be blasphemy for me since I usually order my planes from Horizon 99% of the time. Please share you thoughts & experiences learning low wing characteristics & opinions as to brand or specific plane. Thanks again for your help!

The Horizon T-28 is perfect for what you want. It's pretty forgiving and has a wide flight envelope.

The Parkzone T-28 is a great choice. Like many Horizon Hobby great products, they have discontinued it. You may still be able to find one on a hobby shop shelf but you can still find them advertised for sale in R/C classifieds.

Many guys used pattern airplanes as jet trainers.
