Question
What to buy..

Ive had a few cheap 2 channel highwings, and a few indoor planes, Time to step it up!

So, Ive decided to get a flysky/turnigy 9x. I just cant decide what plane to buy. My budget after the transmitter is $250.

I would like to have enough speed for vertical flight with out stalling, but would also like to fly stable at slow speeds. Also the ability to do 3D. Is this "all in one" plane im thinking of even possible, or am I just dreaming? Any planes you guys can recommend?

Thanks!

After just coming from two channels, I would suguest going with something a little slower. Get a Hobbyzone Micro Champ. A ton of fun in a littl package.

I never said it was a good question, but the Sniper is a good answer to those requirements. Stable, unlimited vertical, low stall speed, 3D-capable. Not good for a beginner, but I've seen it used as a second trainer with good success.

There's a lot of good biplanes out there but please keep in mind that if you're stuck in the bargain basement... well, you're going to experience a lower quality level than if you spend a bit more money. And, Nitroplanes does not have a good reputation on the quality issue, or the customer service issue. If you like that plane, see if you can get the airframe only, and purchase your parts separately.

I have one of these, and it's low quality, but it flies ok... (ok means not very good by my standard)

I had one of those Art-Tech Eagles. They look nice, but I could not get it to fly on the stock power system. I have had other Art-Tech Planes that flew great out of the box though.

I'd recommend a box of balsa and plans. It's definitely a way to move up, and for a fraction of the cost. Then you can spend the difference on a good radio

I would like to do both honestly. A nice receiver ready 3D foamy for now, and I could take my time picking out plans and building the balsa plane. So, what are some good 3D foamies? How much is a box of balsa ?

I've seen several guys fly Tech One epp 3d plane and they are very inexpensive and well build, but I guess only 3d plane can fit all your requirement. But it seems 3d flying is not easy to learn by yourself, it really need some experienced pilot to give instruction.
