My son and I are looking at the attached sites now, great information... We like the Nexstar also.

I used to own the nexstar and it was a wonderful plane to fly. I had that as my first and moved to avistar. A big move across the country led to a slight hiatus and now am getting back in with the purchase of a alpha 40. Good luck!

This is an old thread/sticky but has value. The Nextstar is a lot of value for an ARF at $140 less coupons at Tower. Lots of wing area for a light loading.
You can add an Eagle Tree flight stabilizer if limited help.
SIGmfg Kadets are a super value with 1000's learning on them. Super light wing loading and slow flight give a new pilot time to react and think while developing skills. The LT-40 is light. The Kadet Sr with a .40 or the seniorita with a .20 or .25 is economical on fuel and great trainer. These two are kits.
Telemasters also offer slow flight for learning.
Check the wing loading before purchasing. Under 20oz a sqare foot. Kadets are around 12oz/ft. And why such great flyers.

I did my learning on a 55 inch wingspan Telemaster with an electric motor. I ordered it through Hobby Lobby (not the craft store).
A foamy Mr. Mulligan flies well, if you want to go the electric route.
If you have a computer around, try to get a flight simulator (RealFlight is expensive for Windows, but good: X-plane is cheap for the Mac, and has 1 RC plane on it -- it is a quality simulator for real-sized planes, and you will need a joystick). If you fly on a simulator until you get basic instincts working, you will save a lot of money (you will avoid a lot of early crashes).
