first warbird

I'm looking ahead and looking for some suggestions on a good first warbird. I'm looking at the Parkzone F4U Corsair right now. I was looking at the FW-190 but was told that wasn't a good choice for my first. Plus the gear is angled inward and that concerns me on landing. Currently, I fly the Apprentice, and won't be buying for a while, but it's still nice to look.

I like the HZ, but it doesn't have an option for the retracts. I would like to have the retracts, that's why I'm looking at the PZ version.

I found the Dynam F4U. It's PNP and 50". Ive read that its not too fast and very easy to land. Plus it has the retracts built in and looks very sleek. Only $169 too.
