not to pimp another site, but I have found a lot of info on RC flight at rcgroups.com. Someone over there can help you better, this is really directed toward cars and trucks!!

I am pretty new to flying but I think the Firebird Scout is a pretty good plane for a beginner. you can either hand launch it or if you have a smooth surface you can take off from the ground with some practice. It is electric and it is durable foam that is not to expensive to replace parts if you would crash it. It is made from Hobby Zone and has everything you need to get in the air for only about $70.00.

Slow stick from GWS. It is large, slow flying, very stable and strong. Ideal for beginners.

The Super Cub by Hobbyzone is an excellent learning plane. It can be found at most hobbyshops for about $160. It is very durable, and a great flying plane. Plus, if you find you really like flying, the Cub can be modified to fit ailerons, flaps, brushless, etc. Check it out.

I hope that helps,
