I don't think slolent's advice is wrong, at all, but I'm in the 3 ch camp.

They make for cheaper, simpler trainers. Propose designed 3ch trainers almost fly by themselves giving a rookie plenty of reaction time.
Yes they handle sluggishly. ...for a reason. To make them easy to fly. And a rookie shouldn't be flying in gusty conditions anyway.

All that said, if you have the bucks for a 4 ch radio go for it. There are many 4ch trainers that are just as forgiving.

I wouldn't recomend either of the two planes you linked to above.
Start with the HZ Super Cub and go from there.
