Go for an Ace simple 400:
Easy to get in Oz
cheap to buy
cheap to kit out (sp400 direct drive)
and you can always throw a slimer in it if the e-attempt doesn't work out

I agree an X250 looks great, but the time it makes its way to Oz you'll be up for a lot of money

If you're going to learn something new I don't say anything... but if you just wanna HAVE FUN get a Zagi or a Razor. Not that fast but tough and cheap - 400 size.

Hi Digital! Found myself in the same boat as you. Been flying R/C off and on since the late 1969. I built an X-250 for my 26 year old son when he sugested we should take up the hobby again. Found out my reflexes and eyesight were not what they used to be! Once sorted out with the help of Larry at SR my son could fly the 250 but I needed something more relaxing.The SR cutie was not yet released so I bought a Miss2 from Hobby Lobby after reading the Steve Horney review on the EZONE. Best $109.00 I have ever spent in this hobby!As said by Cruz and a whole lot of other EZONERS this craft is great! The quality of the kit is EXCEPTIONAL and if built stone stock flies with no problems.Very RELAXING-VERY FORGIVING-Provided me with the opportunity to get my confidence back.I am sure there are other fine models to choose from but this is one you should definitely consider if you are in the market for an ARF. This is definitely not an aerobatic model. But you may find as I did that E-flight is a whole new ball of wax as compared to IC. These are much smaller models that are much less forgiving in regards to cg and control throws than wet powered modelers are used to.Iwould suggest you get one trainer type under your belt before you look to performance ships- Theres a lot to learn!

Zagi, simple cheap fun and durable and easy to fly. I flew glo for 6 years before flying one. Now I fly almost all electric. You can fly it anywhere and bounce it off the local school and not hurt it! They are a ball. Anyone here can vouch for that!---Mike

For instant gratification - get a Mini Ultra Stick PNP. You can fly for almost 15 minutes with throttle management using an inexpensive 3 cell 2100mAH lipo.

For serious fun, get the Mini Ultra Stick ARF and use the Park 480 outrunner. With this combo, the plane can keep up with other glow planes in the field and have unlimited vertical. I've flown the MUS with a Park 480 in windy conditions that keeps other electric flyers grounded.
