sup guys.. im looking for a pretty durable ARF "slow" flying plane (for flight in somewhat tight areas)..
must be a 3D at least 4 channel (with ailerons) and be able to fit these electronics::

3x hitec HS-55 micro servos (can get more if needed)
1x futaba 6 channel R146iP RX
1x Lipo 800Mah 7.4v 2cell
also using Futaba 9C super TX

obviously i am going to need something that comes with the motor and ESC..
can someone recomend any good options for me??

You should consider getting a foamie. They're fun, and the well-designed ones are quite durable.

Here's some clips of the one I'll build next. The one in the first link is using a variable/reversible-pitch prop mechanism and requires an additional servo.

Sumo3D -- Park Flying with a V.P. Prop
Sumo3D -- Park Flying
Sumo3D -- Backyard Testing
Sumo3D Micro -- Indoor Combat
Sumo3D Micro -- Backyard Flying

Here's a link to a thread about building one.

I'll admit that one isn't the purdiest bird on the wire, but there's better looking ones that mimic the appearance of the more classic shapes.

Most planks that aren't foamies are gonna be pretty fast. How much room do you have to fly it in?

thanks for the replies GimbalFan, theres actually a plane in the fourth video u mentioned "Sumo3D Micro -- Indoor Combat" @ timestamp 1:05 has a yellow plane that comes into view doing some acrobats, do u happen to know what plane it is? looks like it might be a good choice.. as for the space i have to fly in is not really specific, i just want it as slow as possible so i can do indoor flying if i wanted to.. plus my eyesight isnt all that so when it gets too far away its hard for me to see so a slow flyer would be perfect to maneuver and keep close to me.. also i wanted to mention i want something that can also hover vertically...

Multiplex Acromaster

Foam but very manouverable, very 3dable, and cheap to run. Doesn't look like TV packaging....

I'll second that! I've got a Banchee E3D too. Both hover effortlessly and will land with little to no roll out The Lil' Banchee is so easy to hover I rarely land it. Just harrier it to me, lock in a hover and grab it with my right hand

I like foamies... But, balsa flies better!
