Default Durable 3D Foamie for Soccer Field

Hello, Iorginally posted this on the Foamies forum but thought it might be better placed here. Sorry for those who have already seen it!

I'm an intermediate level flyer with several years of experience (mainly sport) and I'm looking for a small 3D foamie Ican fly at the local soccer field (surrounded by trees!). Grad school takes up most of my free time so an ARF would be preferable, and I want something a little more rugged that I don't have to worry about an occasional rough landing with, so I'm leaning away from the depron profile foamies. I'm comfortable with basic aerobatics on sport glow planes, but I don't have a whole lot of experience with more extreme 3D, so that's why I'm thinking foamie over balsa at this point.

I was originally considering the Electrifly FlightFlex airplanes but heard they tear pretty easily and frankly they look a little overpriced.

I'm leaning towards either the Electrifly EP Yak 55 3D (with some sort of brushless upgrade) or the TufFlight Bouncer. Any input on these airplanes or further suggestions?

I saw the Bouncer at the WRAM show in Westchester recently, and it looks very good. I would have bought one if I didn't already have a couple of profiles on the go and another 2 in the closet waiting to be assembled.

The only drawback for you might be the size of the place you are going to fly in - this is a 40" w/s plane.
