Although simulators help you with orientation and other ''basic'' things, it will not really teach you how to really fly an airplane. It is much harder to fly an airplane in real life then on a simulator.
The Slo-V is a GREAT beginner plane, but if you don't like flying that slow, then I would recommend getting the Multiplex Easystar or the Hobbyzone Supercub. Both of them are about $160 and they are both RTF's.
Also, don't waste your money buying planes on Ebay. I would say there is a 90% chance that the planes on Ebay won't work. Unless they are from a well known airplane company.
So, even though you have a lot of time on a simulator, I would still suggest getting the two airplanes I recommended above. If you get either one of them, you WILL be happy and you'll enjoy this hobby way better.
