Suggestions for a beginner based on battery size

Hi guys. I've currently be flying helis and have a ton of 3s 1800-2200 mah batteries. I'd like to find a decent plane to learn on that can use these. Any suggestions for a plane Pnf or rtf that would be suitable?

    most of the Durafly range use this battery they have their own catagory Hth

    Personally I'd advise against the Durafly range in this case. As a beginner to fixed wing flying, scale models are less than ideal for learning.

    I'd recommend the AXN in this case for training purposes (and it can do a lot more as you progress)

    Bixler, Bixler 2 or AXN Floater jet would be my recommendations. All are easy to fly, but can be made more interesting (aerobatic) without too much trouble once you're done with the basics.

    If you can fly a heli you already got the basics of flight i would suggest the 1100mm hellcat its a warbird but very robust can take a beating and fly like a dream you will get 5 to 6 mins with 3 cell 2200

    Thanx for the help. Is it as easy as it seems in the sim? I can fly and land very well on the sim. Just wondering how close it is

    the sim is a good start practise with a landing with lots of wind on your sim 90 percent of your flight will be in wind
