Recommend First Electric Park Flyer

Can someone recommend a first electric plane (I have flown gliders before)?

It must:
- be tough
- be arf
- have big wheels to allow take-off from grass
- have a reasonable flight-time (if possible at least ten minutes)

Thanks,
Martin

Hey Martin,
Take a look at the Flyzone Super Cub....nice size 1220mm(48"w/s), well built/strong, easy to modify inexpensively for added power & time aloft, & can handle the grass with ease(4" tundra). Look at my post on the Flyzone Super Cub thread or the review on MotionRC's website.

Check out West Michigan Park Fliers.

Their Highland will take a beating, you can put tundra tires on it if you want.

They are great people to deal with, if you get confused, give them a call, they will answer all questions.

I am terribly sorry. I didn't read where the OP was from. Oh drats, I hate when that happens. I thought I was doing better at catching those things, but again, I goofed.

My appologies!!
