As an aspiring R/C pilot, you need an airplane that checks off a number of crucial boxes. You need it to be easy to fly and forgiving of basic errors. You'll want it to be tough, able to withstand some punishment, and you'll demand solid everyday reliability. In addition, a good flight duration, speedy assembly, convenient transport and easy storage will be high on your list. To coin a phrase, a 'beginner friendly' airplane is what you're looking for, and the Ares Alara is the perfect choice. Supplied 100% factory-assembled, the Alara's advanced EPO airframe is both strong and light, while the rear-mounted motor protects the power system from inevitable heavy landings.
