A tiger 60 is a great second plane to learn aerobatics on. It is very stable and can do any of the maneuvers you want

Four Star 60

I think the Four Star is the way to go, I used my Four Star 40 To compete in IMAC with, it did all the manouvers easily.

Salam Ateeq,

I remeber seeing those manouvers that you performed at last year's IMAC contest at Stoney Creek, yep 4 Star is another good one to have as second plane...

Cheers and AH,

HTe Ultra sticks are all basically the same. I had a mini Ultra Stick, and I let a guy with the Giant Ultra Stick fly it. He said it was exactly the same.

The 60 is a good bet if you want a 60 size.

I would recommend the Sig SE if you keep the throws low it can be as gentle as a trainer, then increase as you gain experience. But if you have your mind set on a low wing plane then it may not be an option for you.

Good Luck

Here's basically the same thing as an UltraStick 60, but without the flaps. it will fly just as good as the Ultra Stick. For 190$, you cannot go wrong. The 4 star 40, Sig kavalier, Mid Star 40 (i had one) and Goldberg Tiger 2 (i also had one) are all great second planes...but from my experience, the Ultar Stick is by far the best choice. I've flown all the above planes except the Kavalier, and I would have to vote Ultra Stick becuase it's easy to repair (box fuse, simple construction) and it's the best bang for the buck (110$ less than the Tiger 2 60 ARF). If you go with any of the above options, you will have made a great choice. (although i would shy away from the Super Chipmunk...i think the Chipmunk would make a good 3rd plane..after you master your second plane.)

I actually think a h9 twist on very low rates is good. It is cheap $120 and is very calm and stable with small deflections. As skills improve so can surfce deflection.

I've had the twist, somethin' extra and funtana and can say that they are all gentle flyers on low rates. Crank up the throws and you'll have a great deal of fun trying 3D!!

I'd go with the tiger 60 or 4 star 60. 60 size planes are easier to see and fly real well. I still fly my Tiger 60. Over the winter added 3/8" to elevator and rudder for a little more fun.

I agree the Chipmunk would be good for 3rd plane. I've got one too. A little hot for second plane. Somethin xtra, funtana, twist, all good 3rd and 4th planes. I'v got some of them.

These teach you how to fly. After that, the Extra's and the Caps are a blast, but unless you progress thru the proper planes you'll be real frustrated.
