View Full Version : I want to buy next plane, which is the easiest to fly?
12-24-2009, 03:20 PM
My choices would be:
E-flite: Extra 260, Mini Funtana X
Great Planes: Extra 330S, Sukhoi Su31, Edge 540E
Basic aerobatics are ok for me. Any suggestions?

I guess that would depend somewhat on your skill level, all the planes you list are 3D capable and all are nice planes, I have the E-flite Extra 260 and the Great planes Extra 300, both are nice to fly and lots of fun but the Great planes Extra is a one piece plane, the wings are glued on permanent and like all the other great planes line the battery is accessed from the bottom, for that reason alone I prefer the E-flight Extra. The E-flight also have a tiny bit thicker airfoil and the canopy and forward deck remove for ease of attaching the wings and installing the battery... the only real caution with the E-flite is to reinforce the landing gear area a bit, at least some extra glue... and you can never go wrong with a Funtana... just my personal experiences...

These are awesome flying airplanes if you can afford them set up right... they all fly great, I had the 48" and the 58" the latter flys like a 50cc size plane!!!! Amazing!!!!

Top of my skills: 40” bottom wing Spotrster, loops, some roll-barrels, introduction to inverted flight, sometimes good landings; knife edge out of questions. In the meantime I bought tiny, foamy SukhoiSu26m which easily does all off stated before +, but this is also very agile plane, I strongly recommend by the way.
