What should be my next aircrat? HELP!

Hey guys,
So Christmas is coming up soon and my grandmother is buying me something that i wanted of my choice. So i decided that i wanted to get a plane. So i have being flying my HZ Super Cub LP (3 years) and AXN floater (2 years) and want to expand on that, so my question is what to get next? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

- 4 or more channels (under 6)
- Preferably from Hobbyking
- and everything under $120 (including shipping)

Any questions just ask

Thanks Josh

You sound as though a scratch-build might be the next step. If you do, then a Funbat is what you need. Depends what TX you have so far, but maybe your Xmas present needs to be the parts to fit in a build from plans depron/foam model

Get a 4 channel warbird such as the Dynam, Durafly or Parkzone T-28 Trojans. Great first 4 channel planes. Under $120.00 is going to be a stretch for any plane you get unless it is a real "junk" plane or an ultra micro something or other.

Now is the time to start feeling out the hobby and decide what you like. You're going to want to try different styles of airplane - gliders, pattern planes, 3D planes, warbirds. Actually figure out what you like - you should have the skills to get almost any plane up and down, so it's no longer an issue of picking within your skill level. Now is the time to focus on your dream. So, do you think you want to learn 3D, or try a better glider, or what?

Well i think i mastered the 4 channels as much as i can with a AXN and i think that i would like to explorer the world of 3D flying. So any suggestions would be awesome. Or do you think i should get a more challenging 4 ch before a 3D aircraft?

Thanks.

No, a cheap profile foamy is a great way to learn. They are durable and can survive some pretty ridiculous crashes, which you will have. You can tone it down with mechanical and radio adjustments and it flies more or less like a normal plane.

To learn 3D, you need something that can handle this kind of abuse and just keep going...
