I agree with the previous posts on aircraft choice, I fancy the Avonds F15 it does land slowly although at quite a high alpha angle the CT-114 Tutor would be my second choice of the list,as for doors they are generally a pain on all models, with jets the legs can be more complex and often shorter with small wheels requiring more sequencing to close after wheels down, also the wings are thinner making installation & driving the doors more tricky with a high risk of knocking them off if you use grass or run off the hard stuff. I am into the early British jets like the Vampire or Venom and my latest project the Provost/Strikemaster all of which have large wheels to help on grass strips which I mainly fly off. My Vampire looks & flys like a boomerang yet it is scale but needs a bit more runway to land.
