Looking for a 4 channel trainer
 
I am looking for a good aileron trainer. I have my choices narrowed down to:
Hobbico Nexstar Mini rx-r

Parkzone Sport Cub BNF

Ares Gamma 370 pro rx-r

I was just wondering if one is a better value, better trainer than the others? Any help is appreciated.

While a little harder to learn on, I enjoy my Flyzone Mini Switch. You start high wing, and can go mid wing later. It's a little harder to fly than a cub, but you state aileron trainer, so I am guessing you've flown a plane with rudder only.

I prefer to recommend the Dynam Cub "ARF" (nearly plug n play)

Its larger than the Parkzone and cheaper than Parkzone's 3 ch version.

Can carry a larger capacity battery with a little foam carving to make it fit. Will fly fine using from 3S 1800 mah to 3S 4000 mah. I recommend the Sky LiPo packs also from Nitroplanes. 20C rating is adequate even with the 1800 mah.

If you already have a radio ARF/PNP is a good way to go.

Note that if you have progressed well with a 3 ch then almost any of the dynam 1200-1300 mm series (including warbirds) are in the list of possible options.

Hi emptypockets,
WELCOME to Wattflyer! It's always great to see new faces. :)

I would go with the Parkzone.
1. It has the largest wingspan. Better visibility when the model is farther away.
2. Trainers usually get pranged a time or three and the Z foam will be easier to repair than balsa.
3. The customer service -in my experience- from Parkzone is top notch.
4. I have seen that model fly in person and she's a sweetheart.

Not saying the others are bad choices, but that's the one I'd pick.

Thank you all for your comments, opinions and even some new suggestions.

Did you get a new plane? What did you get and why?
