!!!!!! Right Decision !!!!!!!

Whats up everyone !!! i'm a 14 year old boy that has just gotten into the electric planes last month. I flew the parkzone Stryker as my first plane then 3 weeks later moved to the Mini Fantana and started pulling stunts on that thing. Does anybody have suggestions on a nice gas plane that isnt a trainer but is a little easier then the rest because i dont want to by a trainer then master it in a week like i have already !!! If anybody could answer my problem i would totally appreciate it !!!!!!!!

Hangar 9 twist.

Costs 99$ and will do anything the MF will do.

Was my first gas plane, flew anything from trainerlike mild to hovers and 3d.

had a .46AX on mine. Loved it.

I confirm on the Twist but would recommend it with a .70 - .82 4-stroke.
I recommend it only if you're really good with the Mini Funtana.
BTW, a guy at our field has both a Funtana 90 and a Mini Funtana - he calls it Mini Me .

The .46 will hover it, if it's a TH or O.S. that is.
with an APC 12.25x3.75 prop.

but it will not provide the pullout power needed for hovering a couple feet off the ground.

unless your doing low level hovers, or plan to anytime soon, you can save about 130$+ with a .46.

If you plan on spending the $$ for the 4-stroke you will not be dissapointed however..

The Accel Hobby Katana GS 40 is a good choice too.
