EPP airplane?

I'm looking to pick up a plane for my son to learn to fly on. Needless to say durability and docile are the two main things I'm looking for. EPP foam seems to fit the bill. Any one have any good kits under $100?

Crashtesthobby Albatross. It's a big dorky looking thing that flies oh so sweet. You can fly the bases on a baseball diamond if you want to. I've had mine 3 years now and crashed it countless times learning to fly and it still lives. It's my go to dog plane

I'm teaching my kid to fly with an EPP EZFly. The thing is damn near indestructible and can fly incredibly slow and easy. The plans are free but you can buy a kit or an ARF. There's a very active build thread here.
