If you think you'll have multiple planes , start with the Tuff Trainer because it will be the easiest to learn on , and then for your second plane get a 4 channel ( like a 3D plane ) to learn ailerons , and then a jet , and then ......
Definitely multiple planes. As you say, something simple and fun to fly, as well as something a little more exciting like the EPO Warbirds and EDF Jets.
But I want my first plane to be more than just a stepping stone. I want it to be capable enough to still be enjoyable once I've learnt what I can from it. Hence the idea of something like a Bixler or SuperCub
