Outdoor foamie recommendations

What would be a good plane for outdoor 3D flying, with wheels, and a quick build? A combo kit might be preferrable as I'm still learning how to piece together the proper components. I'll be using a DX7 transmitter. Although I have a Typhoon, I'm a 3D novice.

Thanks, Bob

DWFoamies YAK 54

We have a YAK 54 that is rock solid for outdoor 3D flying, even in winds over 10 mph it flies well. I'm sure that others will chip in on their experiences with our YAK. We have a "Combo Special" for $109.99 that includes a brushless motor, 20 amp controller and 4-servos. If you mention this thread, I'll throw in a set of landing gear.
