What is a good 3 channel beginners plane?

Hi guys,
Just wondering if you know a great 3 channel beginner plane for me to start flying! I have looked at planes like the supercub and hobbyzone champ but I would like to know if there is anything else I could consider?

There are to many variables to just blurt out an opinion honestly.
Budget, expected wind conditions, flying field size, etc etc....

There is a a wealth of beginner info here - http://www.rcgroups.com/beginner-tra...ft-electric-8/

what ms3164 said.

There are lots of good planes now. Budget is the one consideration, flying field, or where are you going to fly also getting a good transmitter is another item to consider.

Also fuel or electric, I like electric, other like fuel planes.

There are many variables. Read the thread and then ask more questions.
