Which plane should I get for my second plane?

I've been flying the Superstar EP 4 channel with the endo/3.8 GB set up and I've been loving it, but I'm looking for more. I can't buy another plane now since I'm still saving up for the wedding which is in November, but my soon to be wife said she'll get me my second plane for Christmas I gotta love her I'm in between two planes, the Fun World EP: http://www.theworldmodels.com/para/p...?airplaneid=75

and the Combat Corsair Electric Conversion: http://www.greatplanes.com/airplanes/gpma1470.html

Which plane do you guys think would be best as a second plane? I love to do aerobatics, or at least attempts at it with the SS EP, but I love the look of the Corsair. Would the Corsair be to hard to fly as a second plane? Also, would the Fun World EP be able to fly vertical using an 8 cell 3300 NiMH pack?

Thank you in Advance for your input

I don't think I would recommend either one for a second plane and I would never suggest one using a NiMh battery. A good second plane is the Parkzone T-28. It's a 4 channel that runs on lipos, it's also very stable and capable of some aerobatics.

TBH, both of those would make an absolutely horrible second plane. The Fun World 3D is a 3D plane, made for pilots who already have a very firm grasp of which way is which, and have a somewhat decent understanding of aerobatics.

The Corsair is intended for the same crowds, and lacks landing gear. You should go look up videos of people trying to handlaunch models of similar nature. Half of the time the model just flops in, and if you'll notice, NONE of the pilots launch the plane themselves

If you want a GREAT second airframe, then look no further than the Parkzone T-28 Trojan. It's an excellent pane that handles well, LOVES to do aerobatics, and doesn't have a problem with getting beginners acquainted with aerobatics. And it tames right down as well, and is a very docile ship on low rates.

Lol! Planes Galore, If you're still reading this, you really shouldn't post on a 5 year old thread.
