Ck out the Frog at:

The Frog is an excellent first electric flyer, you can buy the kit or the plans, it as a "foamy" 3 channel.:)

GPW's Trainer One is an awesome trainer. Remember that it is only a trainer. It's designed with extremely small control throws and fairly underpowered. It practically flys itself.

Even the Frog can be overcontrolled by a newby, but I like it as a second trainer and the Frog with agressive throws and a motor upgrade will do some pretty awesome rolls, inverted, loops etc.

I taught myself on a Multiplex Easy Star: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&I=LXFRU7&P=C

Very forgiving, flies great, tough (handles crashes well), glides well, can handle some wind (at least better than lighter trainers), still fun to fly after you learn...

I will second the Frog. I taught all four of my kids to fly with the Frog and we keep one around to give newbies and first time flyers stick time. It is a very forgiving and durable little flyer.

I'm not into pushers (given it up), but one that I've seen that seems to fly nice is the Multiplex Sonic Liner. Not real into its looks either, but it is different. I like things that dare to be different, like it.

Definetely the Multiplex EasyStar. For a newbie I think it is best bang for your buck.
Have a look at Patrick Plawners' site (http://plawner.net). He did a great write-up overhere (http://plawner.net/4/easystar/easystar.html).

And once you get used to the Easystar and basic controls, You just ad ailerons and replace the stock 400 with a brushless and have a great aileron trainer with lots of fun!

I have to vouch for the EZ* there are TWENTY-THREE back to back threads over at RCG about this plane..I bought it and it has been GREAT to learn on and fun to fly...in addition, when I got comfortable with flying, still a NOob though, I threw on the camera...the EZ* is a little work horse!
