Recommended Training Aircraft

There are A LOT of "Ready To Fly" airplanes on the internet and they all seem to say "for beginners." We want you to succeed, and in intrest of doing so we are limiting our recommendations to planes with the following requirements:
    1. Big enough to take off and land on our grass runway.
    2. Supported by a "big name" company so parts are available when it crashes (every plane crashes eventually)
    3. Made of a durable foam (EPP, EPO, Z-Foam, etc.) Foam is easier to glue back together for minor crashes.
    4. Electric motor. More to learn than fuel, but more reliable once it is set up. Also, our primary instructor Dave flys electric and cannot help with fuel planes.
Given those requirements, Our instructor "Dave" recommends these two planes:

E-flite Apprentice with SAFE technology RTF

E-flite Apprentice There are LOTS of other fairly decent training planes around but these are known planes that we have first had experience with and parts are available locally.

Flyzone Sensei Receiver Ready version + Spektrum DX5e or DX6i transmitter.

Flyzone Sensei DX5e DX6i "battery and charger would still need to be purchased"
