RE: Beginner to intermediate Planes

The Calmato sport 40 is a wonderful plane. I also would think the calmato 60 would be equally good. They are low in price, and they fly excellently, and
are well constructed. My Calmato sport...

RE: Is There An ARF Similar to a Sig Kougar?

Why not try a Tower Kaos. It is highly manuevarable, yet easy to fly. Also easy to take off and land. It is really almost as easy to fly as the Tiger II, It just goes faster.

RE: plane choice for .25 engine

I'll go with the Sonic low wing. My friend has had a couple of these, and they are good fliers and easy to fly. The quality of the ARF is high, and the price is cheap.
