The RCM Trainers have everything you're looking for in a trainer.

First up is the 65" span 60 size RCM Trainer 60, with 4 channel control for ailerons, elevator, rudder & throttle, designed to fit a 45 to 60 size engine. Check it out here.
And what's better than a great flying 60 size trainer, well if you like your aircraft in a smaller and more convenient package, there's the RCM Trainer 40, with all the design features that made the RCM Trainer 60 great, in a 40 size package, still with 4 channel with aileron, elecator, rudder & throttle.

ParkZone Radian Plug-N-Play Back In Stock - Just Add Receiver, Battery & Go Fly
The ParkZone Radian offers the perfect opportunity for park pilots to experience the true essence of flight. Although a powerful 480 brushless motor enables initial launch, the propeller soon folds back to reduce drag, freeing the plane to utilize thermals of air to remain aloft, instead of batteries. That means flight times for this quiet and eco-friendly alternative are much longer than they are with traditional electric aircraft, making a relaxing day in the great outdoors even better. See it here.
