Hi Philip,

Several of them are very rewarding and rather easy once you are accustomed to linear birds.  
FO-29 would be my recommendation for "easiest" in terms of consistent behavior and high likelihood of successful contacts.  "Easy" includes finding several or more good operators on most passes.
