Of all the RC park flyers available, the HOBBY ZONE SUPER CUB RTF ELECTRIC is THE way to go!
If you are looking for an easy flying RC park flyer then the Hobby Zone Super Cub RTF Electric should be at the top of your list!
My recommendation for first time flyers is to first purchase an RC FLIGHT SIMULATOR and PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! When you are thoroughly competent at flying towards yourself and can take-off, fly a good "race-track" pattern and land without crashing then it is time to try the real thing!
It comes as a RTF (Ready-To-Fly) kit and incorporates the exclusive Anti-Crash Technology (ACT) that makes teaching yourself to fly rc park flyers easier and safer than ever before. With ACT, anyone can learn to fly!
Two sensors on the Super Cub, one on the top and one on the bottom of the fuselage, monitor the position of the plane in relation to the ground. When the plane is flying level, the top sensor sees the sky, while the bottom sees the ground, and they tell the onboard computer that the plane is flying correctly. If the plane enters a dive and the sensors detect that the plane’s orientation is incorrect, the system will automatically correct the control inputs and help prevent the plane from crashing, allowing you time to regain control. ACT lets you fly without worry. And once you’ve gained experience with your Super Cub, you can turn ACT off for more complete control and increased maneuverability.

For a beginner RC airplane, the only feature that MAY prove a challenge, is the "tail-dragger" landing gear. As most launches will probably be from the hand, then landings are the only time when this will be a problem.
Just remember, when taxiing on the ground, keep UP elevator (to keep the tail wheel on the ground) and apply the throttle in short bursts.
The Super Cub has been updated and now includes lithium polymer batteries and charger.
