Beginners flying wing. foamfighters bulletproof?

Hi guys,
I'm going to try and build my first wing. I have been looking at FoamFigters Bullet Proof Wing Build Along

http://www.youtube.com/view_play_lis...72190EE7924CE3

I like that plane very much and the instructions are nice and clean.
Do you think its good design? Or should I try the Bluecor wing ?

Which one you thing is better.
IMO the build of both looks quite easy but I have no idea how would they compare in the air.
And one more thing. I have Dx6i and no spare Rx. I have been thinking about the 6ch OrangeRx from HK. Do you think I should also get the satellite link or is the Rx good enough on its own?

Thank you

An EPP wing is most forgiving for begginers. Take a look at the popular MSComposite EPP Swift II

I use just the OrangeRX - no satellite link. it works fine for me in the local park where I dont need a huge range, just a few hundred metres.
