What would be a good second plane?

I am quite new to this hobby and I've been flying the Champ for about two months now and I think I've mastered it now. I can do loops and I can fly it without crashing it now. I was thinking it was time to get another plane now, probably an aileron trainer. Does anyone know any good second planes? Thanks in advance!

There are already a gazillion threads and posts on the exact same thing. Do a little searching.

There are as many opinions as posts.

HZ S Cub is one, it's 3 ch but many folks, including me, have flattened the wing and added ailerons for almost no money. That way you go to a bigger 3ch that is very stable and then you can convert to 4ch with minimal cash outlay. For more money, the Apprentice is a wonderful 4ch. Big, easy to fly and still has good power and can do basic aerobatics.I had one, loved it, but sold it to make room for other planes. Flyzone Switch is a nice high wing 4ch that has an extra canopy to convert it, using the same wings, to a low/mid wing sport plane. That one can do just about whatever you want.

Look around, this has been discussed/argued a lot.

I apologise for posting another '2nd Plane' thread. I did a little more research and I've seen people recommend the Apprentice and the T-28 as mentioned. With the BNF version of the T-28D, is it possible to use the DSM2 transmitter with it, the one that comes with the Champ?
