Default How does the wonder compair to the shrike?

I am getting a .10 shrike today. Just wondering what the differences might be?

I have a wonder with a bushing 40 and mousse pipe on it. It goes pretty fast still it is very stable and predictable.

after having flown both I think the shrike (40) flies better than a wonder. i've had numerous wonders and just finished a shrike 40 and the shrike, though not as fast as my fastest wonder, is a smoother bird, looks better in the air too, and mine makes a really neat whistling sound as it flies past too
