Cool Plane suggestions needed...

Ok, I'm Mr. Indecision... I picked up a Futaba 6EX & Rr617FS reciver off ebay the other day... now I need a plane... but I can not decide for the life of me... acouple I like are these:

http://www.topmodelproduction.com/Ex...0-Electric.htm
http://www.topmodelproduction.com/Su...n-Electric.htm
http://www.3dxhobbies.com/Airfoilz_E...ge540combo.htm

I'd love this one but being a newbie the idea of a built-it kit unnerves me...
http://www.3dxhobbies.com/Airfoilz_W...extracombo.htm


I want something that'll do 3D (I KNOW, I KNOW, newbie + 3D = crash... but I'm not going to go crazy immediately... she'll do a lotta flying before flipping)... if I'm correct the bigger wing surfaced planes make reaction and reaction quicker, correct? The wing size I'd like is 30-40 inch... no bigger than 40', 34/35' might be ideal... I need landing gear on the sucker... gotta be ELECTRIC... I'm not really picky on a full fuselage vs a "profile" type plane, though I seem to lie the looks of a lot of the profile types, and they seem to have the bigger wing surfaces. Material-wise... well, something that's not super flimsy, I assume I'll ding it on landing eventually.... balsa if possible, if not just a good fairly sturdy frame...

Anyone got any suggestions? Throw them all at me! More I can see the better I'll be... maybe I've not seen something I'll really like yet.

Search no longer. I researched 3D planes for like 2 months, and here's the conclusion of my research. You'll love this plane! http://www.wattflyer.com/forums/showthread.php?t=35708

It's Multiplex; it's Elapor.

What's not to like?
