    Best plane to learn ailerons on? Guess not a warbird :/

    Hello, I have been flying a Hobbyzone Champ for about a year. I am ready to step to the next level.

    I love WWII aircraft, especially the German types. The BF-109 being at the top of the list.

    I had been looking at this as a way to learn a 4 channel plane:

    But it has been suggested that this would be a terrible plane to step up to. That warbirds are not what one should learn ailerons on.

    I am just very curious as to what would be. I just have a passion for these birds. That probably just means I will have to take baby steps in order to achieve my goal.

    I'd recommend a high-wing trainer, like a 182 Sky Trainer, or one of the Cub variations.

    You've already got some flight time under your belt, so a clipped wing cub, sportster, or even a pulse would be a good step up.

    Have fun brother

    Are you flying indoors our out? Must this be an RTF or will a kit or an ARF be good?

    What is your budget?

    Are you focused on micro planes? Can the plane be larger?

    Need a LOT more info.

    You find a request for information sarcastic? Well, we each have our own approach to helping people. I ask for information so I can make informed recommendations.

    What do you base your advice upon?

    No way for me to see that your post was anything other than an attack. Glad to hear it was not.

    Warbirds are the best! I have the FW190 and the FB109, both cool planes, but not the easiest to fly. The T-28 is a newer warbird that is very easy to fly. Parkzone has a good one for $230. A real good flying plane that is forgiving.

    T-28 is a very good first warbird. The corsair is also a pretty easy plane to fly.
