If you want to build one, the Sig Kadet Seniorita is, imho, the best flying trainer kit ever produced.
It can be built with or without ailerons. I believe kit drawings contain both.

Ditto Seniorita, or it's bigger brother the Kadet.

I agree that these are some of the best trainers out there. If you do go with one of these, why not build it with the ailerons and you can grow into it. Sooner or later, you are going to have to learn to use ailerons anyway. Good luck!

You really must learn some BASIC aerodynamics - What do you think the rudder is for decoration?

Get a plane with ailerons; personally I think sometimes you should only learn that way. In the slightest bit of wind ailerons win every time.
MUCH easier. Don't be put of by all this stuff around about three channel planes. They only work under ideal conditions. (Thatís a little exaggeration but not too much)
Cheers

The Great Planes PT40 can be built with ailerons, then you can 'lock' the ailerons into a neutral position until you are ready to use them. You will need to build the 'trainer' wing to do this in order to maximize your dihedral.

I sold a SIG Seniorita for a friend a couple months ago.

It had two wings already built - best of both worlds.
