Look in "outerzone'? for a Pilot 10 plan. (saw it in there not long ago)
Mid 70's kits out of Japan. All their works were Very Good fliers actually

Prairie Bird 50 is another option. They can be found on RCGroups occasionally and on the 'bay.

The Prairie Bird would be an excellent choice for a .10-sized trainer. Regarding the Pilot designs mentioned above, Pilot produced another kit called the Junior 100 and that plan is also on Outerzone.

the "tooter" plans can be had here: http://www.airagestore.com/plans/rc-...rs/tooter.html

about the same as sticking the engine on something like a sig riser or CG gentle lady. maybe chop a foot or so off the wing span.

Actually a two meter glider is a great trainer with a .10 if there is enough room in the fuse for a tank and servos etc.

Are you looking for a real beginners airplaine or a trainer with 4 channels?
The "Stick" type of planes are great fun, even as you improve on your skills, and the Chea-pass should work well on a .10 engine.

Randy Randolph's "Dime" is exactly what you need. AMA has the plans, and Lazerworks cuts a short kit if you want it. It is quite large for a .10 size plane but it's very light. Randy designed good airplanes and had a ton of experience by the time he did this one. It would be very easy to fly and it's a pretty simple build, even simpler with the short kit.

Seriously? If after a First time trainer. Suggest you fit a cheap electric power system. To an almost Free foamboard 'aeroplane'..pretty well indestructible.contraptions when slapped together from EPP foam bits..
Big on training abilities... not so great on looks though.
Look in the 'Scratchbuilt Foamies' forum for massive help
Easy reliable and hassle free.. so you can concentrate on avoiding the ground, without the additional distraction of starting and keeping the motor running... or long and involved crash repairs :-)
Lotsa time later to build your glo model
