Planes like the one you describe are a little too simplified to really teach you about rc flight. Thrust differential will allow you to steer a plane, but moveable control surfaces will give you more flexiblility when you don't have one of those "perfect" calm days. It sounds like you got the rc flying bug and are ready to take the next step. The planes you mention above, most of us would consider in the "toy" class of planes. (No offense intended) If I were you I'd save my money a bit longer and get an Easy Star, or similar EPP (foam) trainer.

You'll get a lot of mileage out of that plane. It comes with everything you need to get started, it flies nice, and can take a beating as well.
I'm sure others here will have more suggestions, but this is what I would do if I had to start all over again.

Happy landings!
Mike
