LA Ming, Guys I'm 100% with sky Captain on this one, I too graduated from a hobbyzone super cub lp and my first ever aileron plane was the Parkzone Mustang gunfighter. Now after a couple years of flying the mustang and my F4F wildcat I would say Yes the wildcat is a very nice aileron plane to start with and what I should have bought in the first place when I first started out. Hand launches very easy, can smoothly land dead stick or come in a little hot, very stable and will fly pretty slow speeds without stalling.
If you do decide to purchase the wildcat, remember just keep it visably close and a tick under half throttle and a couple mistakes high and you will be just fine. The hardest thing you will have to accomplish is getting the bird trimmed out but once this is done your in the house IMO
