I'm looking around for a new airplane these days.
i've been flying a trex 450 this summer but desided to sell it and go over to airplanes again...i've got all electronic so i only need the airplane itself. i was thinkin a 4CH airplane. it should be a bit gentle to fly but also look good..looked up a couple of good ones from hyperion.


or this one (but it's most likely a bit more nervous to fly!


you guys have any ideas????? i would be very greatfull!

If you have any experience, the Chippie (Chipmunk) is a beauty and fairly easy to fly! If you use low rates or a great deal of expo initially, you will find the Chipmunk to be gentle and capable of rather slow flight. And, once all the decals are on, it's quite a beautiful model. The 10e cub from hyperion isn't really as "scale" as it could be in my opinion, whereas the Munk is a crowd pleaser!

okey, thanks for the tips!=D i'm sure they'll come in very handy :)
i gotta say it looks a bit better than the cub as well..but looks aint everything in this world!
I'd better go do some thinking..see you later! :)

The Cub would definately be easier to start, but event there, it is not a beginner plane. The Heli experience should help though, since you will have an understanding of perspective and such.

If you must go low wing, look at their new CAP 232 10e, as it will be more floaty than the Chipmunk. It was build more for 3D and has more wing area.

Better would be a foam plane like the Multiplex Easy Star or Minimag.

I ended opp with this one:


it was quite cheap and it seemed to be of quite good quality. even though its not a scale plane..i'll get there! just a matter of time :)
Better go do some simulator training now, i'll keep you updated.
thanks for the help!

Good choice-I've owned Seagull planes and they are light and well-made. Have fun.
