  The Boomerang is a beaut trainer and I would be a bit controversial here and recommend the 60[10cc] version as a big plane is easier to fly and see.The price difference is minimal.ARTFs are actually cheaper than kits and probably scatch build too.It is easy to get up to 100 quid by the time you buy wood,glues,covering,wheels,tanks and other hardware.Do anything to fly soon and often.I fly 3 times a week but I am lucky because I am 10 minutes from the field.

  As Timbo says get the same radio as the instructor or as stocked by the local shop as you will need help to program it.This is important!
