Arch is correct. There is no magic "best" plane. The plane must be matched to the person flying it. Each plane has different characteristics and each pilot has a different style. My friend could fly the Nuance and not be able to finish in the top 10 but Archie can take that plane and win the AMA Nationals. If both are equal pilots, why would this be? This same friend takes an Episode and ties Archie round for round. It's because simply, what is great for one does not make it great for all.
You really need to fly several airplanes that (and this is important) are trimmed properly and find which flies best for you. There is no doubt that the Axiome EP is awesome but if it doesn't fit your style then it is the worst plane in the world. I would see if friends will let you test fly several different models and finding one that makes you say "Oh yes!"
Your question is absolutely impossible to answer with just one airplane. Every person will have a different answer for you.
