Another suggestion would be any of the twisted hobbies EPP foamies. I have the crack Pitts and it flies wonderfully as a fully aerobatic 3d ship on high rates but is also a great plane on low rates for doing simple aerobatics as well. Very well behaved at slow speeds too. Pretty indestructble as well since I've nosed it in on the parking lot a few times, had a bunch of unscheduled inverted landings. Couple minor foam tears which are simple to fix and its back in the air. Heck it met the ground 3 times this morning trying stuff I shouldn't have been trying at 5 feet off the ground. No damage at all just kept on going. I love it.
I actually ordered another twisted hobbies plane last night. getting the extra slick. Can't wait to fly that one.
