In the end, it's your plane so do what you feel is best. I wouldn't recommend my route to everyone but I will admit that my hand launch maidens are more exciting...probably shortened my lifespan by a few days whenever I fly a new plane
I've got a Mini Malibu and its my 1st 3D plane. I found it to be very easy to fly compared to all of my other planes. Sounds weird to say a 3D plane is a relaxing plane but they have to be much more stable than scale planes in order for you to do those 3D moves. So don't worry too much, you'll enjoy your maiden.
