Default FlyZone SkyFly Max OR ParkZone F4F WildCat?

I have been flying the HZ Super Cub since 2008. I think I'm ready for something else. Time for a Level Up. Looking at the ParkZone F4F WildCat OR FlyZone SKyFly Max.

Which one would you choose?



This a video of me flying my Cub.

I started on the supercub too. Then went to the PZ corsair and then traded a crawler for the wildcat. I have 10 flights or so and love it. Cant say for the other plane you had. I havent flown my corsair in a few months but I think in comparison they are close.

NO worries! Found out the hard way that the Wildcat hates to come in slow for landings. Came in a bit too slow and it nosed in. Broke another cowling, motor mount and stripped the rudder servo. DOH!

Among all the planes I have , the wild cat always gets a ride to the airfield . Why ? Because its a LOt of fun to fly . Vertical , inverted , loops It does it all . And it lands like butter . Soft and slow , just point ot into the wind . I've had this one since they came out . I fly it on a power 10, 3 cell with a 9X5 . Been clocked at 79mph .

Flyntruk,

Looks like the WildCat has a lot of brownie points. LOL!! Yeah, The only thing that was kind of bothering me about the WildCat is it doesnt have landing gear, but I guess I can get over that aspect of the plane. LOL!!
