A Good Next Aircraft

Hi everyone!

So I've been flying for quite some time now. I first started out on the Cox Models Skyranger (whose prop I have now totaled, it's still on my repair list) which I was ok at flying. After that I tried my hand at flying the Parkzone P-51 Ultra Micro, which I haven't flown recently. For the past two months or so (which has amounted to about a month of actual flying mainly because of my schedule becoming more hectic recently) I've been flying the HobbyZone Sport Cub RTF with SAFE and the EFlite Habu S 180 with SAFE tech. I've got a good handle with flying these aircraft in beginner mode and I'm just feeling like picking up another aircraft and was wondering what to pick.

I've been looking at the F4U Corsair with SAFE http://www.horizonhobby.com/product/...nology-hbz8280

and the Parkzone T-28 Trojan

but am open to any other suggestions.

I think both of those would be decent choices, but as you're still on beginner mode you should probably stick with what you've got until you can fly on expert.

I'm a few months in and Id recommend going with a plane withOUT safe. I went that route and now when I fly something like. Bix it's like learning all over again.

I went with the t28 myself after the Duet, Delta Ray and I crashed it a good bit in the beginning. It was easily fixable, but it made me nervous flying it for awhile.

I would fly want I got and get my p51 back out. And learn to fly in he other mode's with , safe plane's while safe is great it puts a limit on what a airplane can do. Seems you know safe can help you fly anything. But are you ready to fly anything without it.

Oh I have no intention of abandoning my other aircraft. I just felt like picking up a new one so I was curious which ones I could pick up.

The s4u Has safe so you know you can fly it. than you have a great looking fighter plane. Both are great planes your flying a jet so you should be able to work in the one you want. When you said you were flying a habu with safe I went to watch some video's of the plane very cool plane.

I just bought a crashed Delta Ray and its missing the plastic bulkhead that glues into the fuselage to hold the front landing gear. This is not the part that comes with the landing gear but part that comes with the fuselage. Does anyone who have this piece I could buy? Thanks, BillyV
