My first RC airplane was an electric J3 Cub I got off Ebay for 60 dollars including shipping. You can get replacements parts very easy for it and it is a forgiving airplane. It set me up great for my gas planes. I still have mine but it needs some work. If you are interested in buying I will make a very good deal on it and tell you where you can get the parts needed to get it flying again.

Slow Stick and Beaver, by GWS, are pretty common choices as first electric planes. Cheap too, and they work.

If you can spend $450.00, The Hobbico Electrstar is probably your best option.
I have not seen one in action yet, but looked over the kit at the hobby shop.
I am very impressed with the quality and size!
If you don't want to spend that much, then I recommend a Hobby Zone Super Cub.
I have taught one person to fly with the Super Cub. It is a very good trainer. But, it doesn't handle much wind.

The first plane I flew was a Pico Cub which is very much like a Piper Cub. It is only 3 channel though.
