foam planes

Hi all, my sons are due to join a model flying club, they have had tester days and loved the experience. They are aged 11 and 13. I have been advised to get a large foam plane - like an apprentice type. Does anyone have any specific recommendations for planes. They will invariably crash them and therefore I am looking at foam. also when I purchase the plane to I have to buy the remote control kit separately or do they come with them?
many thanks

    Bixlers would be ideal for first flying experience in the sad absence of the AXN Floater Jet.

    You would need a radio set, and the decider on this is how much you want to spend ... prices from about £30 to sky high ...

    My sons are joining the model flying club. I have been advised to look at appreontice planes or similar types as a first flying plane - can you advise which foam plane is a good starter - ( I am keen not to spend an extortionate amount for the first planes but been told to get a large one as it will enhance the experience) - I have looked at the tundra, durafly, hking ( my eldest son is very good with tinkling so can add to the plane etc
    . also do the planes come with remote controls or is that a separate acquisition
    thank you in advance
