Default ARF Foamie recommendation!

I unfortunately rarely get out to the field when a bunch of training is going on. Anyone have a recommendation for an ARF foamie trainer today. I'm thinking something like the T28 that is so popular except high wing.

I have one of the tilt rotors myself! Have only hovered it around the living room to see how they are doing the stability augmentation!

The eflite is exactly what I'm looking for but just bought my nephew a real radio and sim interface so he can play with the sim and get used to setting things up.

Prefer something without the radio included. Maybe I'm still being too old fashioned.

I believe the radio that comes with it does not have digital trims and is not the best of radios. I saw one that came with the DX5 which is a decent radio,but any spektrum should bind to it.

I'll second the Eflite Apprentice recommendation. Very stable and slow enough for a beginner to follow. I also highly recommend the Parkzone Radian sailplane. I learned to fly by myself with a powered glider 30 yrs ago and I still have it and fly it occasionally.
