Beginner - UMX Extra 300 or SuperSlo 28
I have been looking at getting into 3D for a while now (have a few RET planes and helis so I am not really beginner).
At the Horizon Festival this weekend in Columbus I picked up a UMX Extra 300 BNF ($40) used as well as a Superslo 28 kit ($10). I was hoping to to learn on the UMX then build and move to the Superslo later, but reading some of these posts makes me wonder if I should be going the other way (SuperSlo then Extra).
There was a guy selling a BNF McFoamy there too - wish I would have jumped on that
Any thoughts? Can I successfully learn on the Extra 300 or would I be better off taking the time to build the Superslo and start from there?

You should have bought the Mcfoamy because it is very durable and easy to fly. The UMX 300 is not hard to fly but will not take crashes at all before it disintegrates, not even minor crashes. Save the 300 till you have some skills. I do not own and have not flown the superslo but you should buy an epp plane like the Mcfoamy to start with..
