Hello folks,

posting this in the beginner forum because while I used to build and fly planes 20 years ago when crystals and nitrous engines were the norm, technology has moved on so much that I think I need to start again. I was only an intermediate flyer when I had to stop flying.

I'm looking for a relatively inexpensive first RTF plane to re-learn how to fly and for my teenage son to learn also.

I am short of time these days, so I'll not be able to build in balsa like in the old days. It has to be plug and play.

I've seen a few kits with transmitters included. I'd prefer, I think to get a separate, slightly better transmitter for more flexibility going forward. Nothing particularly fancy at this early stage, though.

The good aspect is that we have a 3 acre paddock at the back of our house, so I could fly very conveniently. But residents' gardens border it, so the plane would need to be electric.

What would you suggest, please?
