Easiest to fly/build foamie

Hi, guys. I've used the search function because I was sure someone else had asked this question before. I'm looking for an easy build on a plane I can take camping with me and teach my 10 year old grandson to fly with. Bear in mind that, while I've built 10 or so foamies, I'm still a rank amateur when it comes to flying. Looking for a RET build and profile is ok to make things faster/easier/cheaper for the inevitable crash/rebuild/replace. What say you- any favorites??

I'd say some sort of profile J3 Cub, or Cessna type trainer ought to do. You can even use the 3-views and design one - its more simple them most believie it will be.

My wife just flew her EzFly for the first time & was very impressed. The build was also easy & durable.

Blu Baby and Oshkosh special are great high wing RET trainer planes. Of the 2 I would pick the Oskosh Special.

PS--Sidecar, if you ever get to the states let us know. We have a group of foamie fliers in South east MIchigan. Here is our thread...
