Thats a complicated answer.

The super cub is probably your best plane to start with with no experience. Its only a 3 channel (throttle, elevator and rudder) so it will me much easier to fly and will be more self correcting. Now its not going to be able to do lots of aerobatics like a normal 4 channel plane but its not meant to. Its meant be a good starter plane that you can put floats on and learn to fly off water as well.

The apprentice is a great plane to start with IF you have some experience with planes or on a simulator. It makes an awesome second or third plane to play with. It does have ailerons so you are able to roll the plane over. its not forgiving as a starter plane but thats why its a good second plane.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask. I have been selling planes for the better part of 8 years. I have a lot of information/opinions about almost every RTF/ARF plane built in the last decade. But you know what they say about opinions, everyone has one.

another one to consider is the Firebird Stratos. Its supposed to be a great trainer and a very calm flyer.
