Default Next plane

I'm looking for a good follow up plane for my son. This will double as my first plane in 15 years (coming from nitro).

From what I've read, the T-28 seems to be a good, fun, next step up from his HobbyZone cub. And I think it would keep me entertained until he is ready for it. He's looking to do basic aerobatics and such - not into 3-D yet.

As far as my second plane, I'm thinking the follow up for the T-28 (assuming he goes that route) will be a 3-D plane. The VisionAire has peeked my interest. I think it would be challenging to learn 3d as well as offer good aerobatic flight. However, the new Artizan coming out in March also seems pretty good. I'm intrigued by the As3x system -- perhaps it will offer me a few more days of flying here in DFW. Since my lakes are empty and skiing is likely out this summer, I'm hoping to spend that time at the flying field.

I'd like to stay in the .40 sized nitro size (electric tho). It seems the 11.1V range is a good price point for most gear. I don't have the bucks to invest in the 4S/5S battery ranges. I've thought about the Ultra Stick 25 just for nostalgic reasons.

Anyone have a plane they just absolutely loved? I'm sure there are lots of opinions out there. Fortunately, I don't think I can't really go wrong w/ the above choices.

Back in the nitro days, I enjoyed a modified Ultra Stick (or Big Stick, flipped to a low wing) .46 that hauled balls. That was a fun plane until I came across the runway at full throttle and went to go vertical. Except that I forgot I was inverted. Everything in front of the LE was toast. Dad was not happy.
