From what I've read on this and other forums, an EDF isn't exactly a beginner's plane. T28 JET?? Never heard of that, T28 is a trike geared prop plane as far as I know...

Errr.. the T28 isn't a jet

Do you meant T38?

Anyway, the simple answer is 'no'. Any scale EDF jet is not suitable for a raw beginner, period.

3 channel high wing like a U.M. Piper Cub would be a good start...

A trainer.

Depends what size plane you have in mind, what your budget is and if you want to build or just get something ready to fly. There are many good trainers out there. Best advice i could give is find a club or other flyers in your area and get one to help you. Finding an instructor will save you a lot of disappointment and frustration.

Hobbyzone Supercub is a good start. It can take a beating and spares are easy to come by.

Personally I'd get something bigger than an ultra micro. Very small light planes don't cope with wind very well and generally don't fly as well as larger planes. Sure they can be a lot of fun in their own way but you will end up sitting around a lot waiting for the right weather and the novelty wears off pretty quick.

Small planes do crash well though which can be an advantage. But if it were me I'd get something more along the lines of a Parkzone Super Cub, this will give you a lot more potential to progress and will cope with a bit of wind better.

?

That would be a 'no' .. That might make a good second plane after becoming fully proficient on something like the Supercub (though a pretty big step from the Supercub so you might need some help). But the Suprano is glow powered, so you really need to decide if you want to fly glow or electric. Large glow powered planes like that needs a proper flying site away from houses and people, and they aren't cheap to run.

The thread already contains some good suggestions for a first plane.

I love this quote from the product page:

The SOPRANO is the perfect model for a successful start into model flying.


Completely false claim...
