Good plane to fly at my club

Hi guys. I fly helicopter mostly and right now own an eflite blade 400 and trex 500. I have only recently joined an rc club about 20 minutes from my house. not alot of helicopter pilots fly there, so its mostly just planes in the air. I was recomended (and totally agree, because the park is huge so it wont be to hard to fly) that I get an rc plane aswell so I am not sitting for an hour waiting to fly my heli. I want to get a basic plane off hobbyking, because I have a spektrum dx6i I do not need a rtf. I would love an edf, but I guess prop planes are easier to fly ??? anyway, if anyone has gotten planes from hobbyking that flew good, can you please give me some recomendations. Thanks alot.

I live near SFO in CA. I've bought several planes/helis from HobbyKingCity and others from that area. So far I've never got one that wasn't damaged in shipping. They always say just send it back, but they won't cover the return shipping.

I like this one but it isnt ever in stock for long because they sell a lot of them.

Its $100 RTF, but you can sell the RX/TX to someone for $30 and have a great platform to learn from. The Hawk Sky will be my next RC purchase.

Keep away from jets if you're starting on airplanes. The following are great prop planes from HK:

Skyart Cessna 182

And if you want to turn heads at the field, this model is HUGE and beautiful:
Durafly Cessna 182

You can do some aerobatics with this one and it flies very well while training:
ArtTech Decathlon

Here's a tip about buying from HK: Read the reviews and the discussions on item pages. That's where you'll find out what the model is REALLY like.

Ehh, yeah, even with heli experience, it's NEVER a bad idea to start with a prop driven plane

Since you seem to be proficient with helis, might I suggest a ParkZone T-28D Trojan? It's BNF, so you're pretty much set to go out of the box. Plus it can use your 3s 2100 20C packs

It's a stable aileron trainer platform (the parkzone t-28), and loves to do aerobatics when you're ready

For a first go avoid prop-out-front configurations and stick with high wing.
