Looking for a 4ch cub

Ok guys can't make my mind up which one would be a better purchase. I haven't read the best reviews about FMS's cub but I do like the fact it is bigger. Dynam's seems to be better quality and cheaper price point with smaller wing span. So if you have two cents feel free to chime in. I really haven't made up my mind both have ailerons which is all I'm concerned with really. Working my way up to 4 channels. Any other ideas are welcome too. Thanks in advance.

I also like the Multiplex - it's a good, basic, easy-to-fly plane. You also may want to take a look at the Hobby Zone Super Cub, 48" wingspan and a brushed motor. It's a fun "cub-style" plane to fly, plus you can easily modify it to add ailerons and a park 480-size brushless motor, which make it even more fun to fly . One other nice cub is the Parkzone Sport Cub, 51" wingspan. with oversize "tundra" tires and built-in flaps that you can hook up when you progress a little further with your flying skills. Any of these planes are going to help you learn quickly and enjoy this great hobby! Take care, r2crash

If you are looking for "like a cub", the Durafly Tundra is looking nice. It isn't really a Cub, but is close to one.

Thanks for the input guys. I already have the super cub, but I don't want to mod it besides that would eliminate my excuse for getting a new plane! lol

Fun Cubs are great flyers, have tough foam, handle varied surfaces, are easily repaired and modded, and are large enough to handle a good amount of wind while still being very transportable. You can build it to use the ailerons and later cut the flaps loose and add a channel for those.
