For a first plane I went with the Apprentice and was glad I did. I liked the fact that it was a large plane. It has enough power and the ability to do loops and rolls and inverted flight. I eventually upgraded to a more powerful motor and put floats on it. It's a blast to fly of the water and looks great with floats.

In regards to the DX5e. I kept mine for one main reason "backup". I have a DX7 but I keep my DX5e in case there ever is a problem with the DX7. If your main radio goes south and you need to send it in you don't want to be loosing the flying season waiting for a repair. I also have used it to buddy box with new fliers.
