Default Which foamie to build?

Hi,

I picked up some Elmers Foam Board yesterday but I cant choose which plane to build. I want an airplane that is simple enough to learn 3d and aerobatics on but a plane that is fun as well (like the Nuttball). It needs to be small enough so that I can fly it in a cul de sac like area. I appreciate suggestions and other recommendations.

Thanks,
PA

I know the feeling you get from flying in your front yard and above your neighbors house and sorrounding area. It's fun as hell!! I've only experienced the rcpowers Extra 300 and it's very simple to build and flies like it's on rails. I picked it for that reason.. I have flown many others front yard fliers and that one it's up there with the most fun category...

Thanks, Im leaning toward the Nutball a little because it will be a bit cheaper and looks like a lot of fun, but Im waiting for a couple more replies (if any). The great thing about foamies is that they are so fast to build.
