What's a good first 3d plane for an advanced flyer?

I've been begging and pleading for a 3D/precision hybrid for years.(Besides Reactor,Inspire 60). Somehow I don't think they'll be huge sellers no matter how well they fly-"It's not scale" will be the complaint. Well you can only beat the dead "scale" horse for so long. I'm looking to the future when every scale aerobat has been done ad nausem and folks are finally looking for something different. Don't get me wrong, I like scale(semi-scale lets face it) 3D planes, but you can only go so far with a design that's limited by it's initial criteria-aerobatics not 3D flight. Time for something out of the box and with better flight characteristics(i.e. Clik!). David K. has the Virtuoso 3D a composite 2m airframe but haven't seen any stateside or heard any flight reports or vids. Looks about right though....Also tried the Zafiro 3D-nice looks but not so nice in flight. Oh well lesson learned...

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack this thread Cheese Puddin-I blame Ministeve! He started talking about hybrids first...couldn't help myself.
I say go for an EPP plane either profile or full fuse with an airfoiled wing. They'll pay for themselves after the first few doinks.

Jason

I went to my friends house and we cut out our own fomie bipes ( no pics, sorry)
Fun to fly, easy and cheap to build.
But i would definatly go with the parkzone typhoon 2. I hear there great for 3d begginers

I would really Like to see something in the 42-48" size range with LE extensions/sfg's built in... It could be foam, but I would want it to be very rigid, a Foam/Balsa/Carbong Fiber Composit could work...

From my experience, the Typhoons don't fly all that great. They're more of fun fly planes that like to hover (gotta use some coaxing), but really don't like rolling stuff that you would do with your normal foamy.

A member in our club has a Typhoon. Its a nice flying plane, but I would not consider it a 3D aircraft.
