IMHO-3D flying IS sport flying unless you are in 3D competition and then that is ALSO sport flying. My definition of sport flying is just simply flying for fun.

The GP U-Can-do or the Hangar-9 Twist will both do 3D but make nice, comfortable sport flyers on low rates. The GP Reactor is supposedly great at it all; I may have to buy one and find out.

The only one I know of that is NOT a good sport flier is the Funtana 90. It's a bit too fragile for high-speed flight

A yak is a great plane. they have very large wing area and a very light wing loading.

Electric although it can compete with gas in performance is still expensive. 2 stroke glow is cheaper then anything else. Any of the current 6 channel computer radio's will work unless your planning on doing something fancy. If your going to buy a radio, I would get a 2.4 ghz such as Spektrum DX7. 72 mhz is on its way out. Do some reading, alot has changed.

A U Can Do makes a good sport flyer as well as some 3D.
