There are so many choies it's hard for the new guys to know where to start, but personally I love the 47-50" class planes. I like them because they are big enough to fly smoothly and solidly, and they handle the wind well. They are small enough that they are afforable, and so are the equipment and batteries. I also like that they fit in the car (mine is a 200 Nissan Altima) assembled so you can do all your preflight at home. I can also store a lot of them assembled in the house and out of my 100 degree garage.
I love the 60" planes too, but they are more work and more money. I wish I had a bigger house, bigger car, and more money, so I could have more of them!
