Better first plane Super Cub or Mini Cub


Looking for some advice, pros and cons and opinions on both planes as which is easier to learn on. I have a DX6I and heli experience.

You may not like my answer, but I think the best first plane for a new guy is a slow stick. You can't beat that thing for a trainer and they are fun too. I have been flying since the 60's and I still fly a SS............

What kind of heli time? Awesome hardcore 3D flying, or a 3 channel toy? Big difference.

I forgot to add, in general, the bigger a plane is, the more stable it will be. The tiny planes can be squirrelly, twitchy, harder to see, etc.

I'm up to a mcpx and have about a year of heli exp. I was given a new umx polecat but I know that little plane is way to much to learn on.

Both good planes, but I would get the Super Cub, mainly for better stability, ease of repair, & durability.
