E-Maxx = Easy (Plug and Play)
T-Maxx = Not so easy for a beginner.

If you get the E-maxx get some good batteries, LIPO's or at least 4600mah NiMH.

I have both - and the Taxx was my 1st back imnto teh hobby after a long time away (planes). It was a handful, especially tuning the 2.5 - it has a rep for being a finicky engine, but its mostly due to a relatively small tuning range where it runs like its supposed to and doesn't get too hot.

Emaxx would be better, but its still going to be a learning curve to get to know it and how to charge and get the most form the batts. Emaxx has no low voltage cutoff which is needed to protect lipo. I wouldn't advise starting new with an Emaxx and going for lipo right off - thats a recipe for damaged/ruined lipos.

Get a lipo capabel charger though and some good NiMHs pacs. WHen you know your way around things and feel comfortable making wiring changes, add the lvc and pick up a pr of good lipos.
