This could be a good one. Coming to HobbyKing in a few weeks, and sure to be inexpensive. I can only hope the ridiculously chubby looks means lots of interior room!

I don't know it looks like it has more foam than room. Although it would provide a lot of padding for electronics in a crash. Since I am looking for a good starting platform though I do hope it has a lot of room.

How about this one?

Pusher star wingspan looks very narrow.

Looks like its all foamie with now spar or anything, too.

I don't know if the Eagle Wing is any different...

Rob, I'd be surprised if it didn't have a spar. I've never seen a foamie of this size without one.

lol, well my blade dancer EPP doesn't have a spar becuase i just never put one in, corner hobby shop is way too fa away! and it has a similar wingspan, just epp foam and a tiny 10 cm spar in the middle joining the 2 halves.

I would have made a longer wing and smaller chord for the pusher star, more efficient.
ps this isn't me or my plane, just a random blade dancer so u an see the size of my non sparred wing

Yeah, I didn't do any research so maybe it does have a spar, you would think it should. Hard to beat the Easy Star though, except in price really.

Found this on the "Pusher Star"

"Pusher Star is specially designed for RC beginners by RICCS Electronic Technology Co., Ltd...It is an advanced trainer aircraft for the beginners. As the airplanes always are fell off becuase of the hobbists unskilled operations. So we use the stronger EPO material as the mainstay. We consider the most of the R/C enthusiasts always like flying and communicating with other RC hobbists outdoor, so we design a kind of demountable main wing. You can conveniently put it into the boot of the car. It can be easily inserted into the two side holes of the fuselage. Meanwhile we can offer the training mode radio system so that the R/C hobbyists can relaxedly and fast learn to fly from the trainer, enjoy the fun of the flying.

The location of battery is under the cockpit of the airplane. In orde to replace the battery conveniently, our cockpit is pasted with magnet. You don't worry the battery fall off the cockpit. If you still worry, we suggest you paste both the cockpit and the fuselage with the scotch tape again.

If you are a enthusiast of aerial photography, we specially reserve a position for installing the camera. That you need change the tawny cabin for hyaline cabin so as to enhance the its sharpness. In order to enhance the withstand wind performance, we specially select 6mm in diameter carbon rod to connect the main wing. In this way, under 5 level strong wind, you don't worry the main wing will be broken off.

We use a single bulgy anhedral wing section for the main wing. The features of the wing are good stability and favorable glide. The main wingis used middle monowing so that the airplane can do various actions more flexibly. You can loosen the remote control after the airplane enter into the appointed air line. The airplane can still fly free. Of course, Riccs company doesn't suggest you operate like this. If you do like this, the loss caused by it, any responsibility won't be undertaked by Riccs.
It is a expected product for the beginners. Believe it's wise to select it.

Ron: the main appeals would be 1) ailerons, 2) comes with brushless motor, 3) doesn't need modding to fly right (EasyStar's rudder is too small when used with a decent motor).

Quoted from original all typos and bad grammar are theirs.
