What should be my next plane?

I have these heli/planes:
1) V911 Heli - Have been able to fly ok
2) Wild Hawk airplane - No success in flying
3) Champ - Have flown successfully, but NOT after fixes to broken parts - probably due to weight and mis-aligned parts
4) SU-26 Broke prop shaft on first flight - waiting for parts - Maybe was too fast and my inability to use the ailerons properly.

I liked the Champ in that I could fly it and only required small space. The Wild Hawk was much bigger and appeared to require a larger space to fly.

I think I want a plane of about the 35 inch size, and I feel that my next one s/b with ailerons, but I could be wrong! I like the idea that with these size planes, at least I can see the parts and use screws, etc instead of just glue!
So, what do you think? My desires in a plane, besides above, is to be able to fly, do some aerobatics and preferably in small park.

Also, with 4+ transmitters on hand now, should I go for a set transmitter now? If so, would the DX6i or the FS-TH9X be the one for me? Note that I am leery of having to do a lot of work setting the transmitter up.

P.S. Yes…….. I am a RC addict now.
