Default whats the next plane? on not?

hey guys i just wanted to what to get as my next plane, well i just started flying i mean just started 4 days one gallon of fuel flying a Kyosho Calmato Sport 40 (didnt start with a wing up) everything was smooth and fine and i was capable enough to control it and do some manuevers. on my number 12 landing it was getting dark after the plane landed safley it hit a metal rod sticking out of the ground so its a gonner [:-] now i`m thinking of what to get next , i have an engine already and servos are all fine the engine is a .56 tiger shark (i know cheap and chinese but good). so what u guys think is a good plane that i can have fun with and still go forward on learing curve? i dont like 3D.

i read around and it seems that a Stick would be a good choice, what u guys think? and what else is also available ?

thanks
Yogy

You can't go wrong with a stick. IF you have a computer radio and the mixing functions, the H9 Ultra stick is a nice plane.

Sig 4 star 40 if you think your up for a tail dragger. Easy flyer that can be aerobatic. Easy on the wallet. Kit and ARF flavors that will fit your gear.

A few others would be:

Tiger II
Pulse XT
Super Sportster 40 MKII

Too bad about the Calmato Sport. I think you would have been flying that for a long, long time before you ever truly tired of it. Most of the Extra 300S ARFs on the market are a good transitional plane from low-wing trainer to scale aerobatics. The Extras have nice smooth handling characteristics and they don't tend to snap stall like the Caps or Edges if you get them too slow.

A good pattern ARF like the Great Planes Venus 40 or a World Models Groovy 50 F3A, Spot On 50, Aero Pet 50, or Zen 50 would also be a nice step up from the Calmato Sport. Like the Extra 300S, they'd need to be landed a little more quickly than the Calmato did, but they would otherwise be well behaved while capable of terrific aerobatics.

Good luck and good shopping!

Nice landing . At least you already flew a low winger. I say a 4 star, or a super sportster now. If you were proficient with the calmato then go with a stik, somthin extra, or my favorite a PROFILE[8D]

The Supersportster .60 comes to mind. your Tigre Shark should be able to handle it. Or maybe a .60size stik...Either one is a good choice. You may want to go with the Goldberg Tigre, it seems to handle a little better than the sportster and slows a little more for landing. Sportster keeps you on your thumbs...
