Default Best Profile for around 200

Im looking into a profile for around 200 bucks, what do you all think about the goldberg ex-treme 330? Is it good or bad or what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I have a C.G. Extra 330 and it does fly real nice. I would sell the airplane, engine and a JR Radio system for that $$. Use the privite email and give me your phone number. Thanks.

For that price range, valuehobby.com has a probro approved Sabre 47 that would be around your price range by the time you add a motor/servos. Great airframe, my 2nd favorite after a Mojo kit built profile. DG

I was just going to say I'll bet you can build a Mojo or LamYak (or variant: LamSuk, LamBach, etc.) from a kit for well under that budget. Maybe even one of Texas Hobbies's Mad series?

If you want a heavy, fast, easy to break hover trainer, the Goldberg slab will be fine. To really learn 3D and fly like it shouldn't logically be in the air (airplanes don't fly like that!) you'll need either a foamy (Tufflight bouncer series is good, as are the DW Depron planes) or an easy-building kit....

At Ohio Model Products I think they still have a few 47" yaks and edges left, give em a try.

I flew one of these when they first came out for 2 full years. I even put skis on it and 3D itin the snow they are a good flying profile's. Looks like Captn took good care of the one he has for sale.

Didn't they discontinue the Goldberg models a couple of years ago?

Thanks,

I bet you would..........OP, stay away from this bird. Heavy, and doesn't fly anything like a Mojo, Primo, OMP etc. etc.
