Hi kevin
Welcome aboard
Im pleased to meet you
High wing trainers with dihedral are the easiest to fly and are the recomended choice when starting to learn to fly rc
I would then say Biplanes and mid wings next and then low wings ,warbirds and edf's after
Hope this is of help
Take care
Yours Hank

I completely agree. But keep in mind that not all biplanes are created equal.
There are slow flyers like the Eflite line has. And there are flat out aerobatic monsters that are not for beginners. Rule of thumb with biplanes is if it looks old from WWI then its a slower more docile plane. If it looks shiny and new with an enclosed cockpit its aerobatic.

The number of wings gives almost no indication of how easy a plane will be to fly.
