Default Looking for a new plane! Advice Needed

Hello all...............

I am looking to add another plane to my fleet and was looking at the UltraFly Ultimate Bi-Plane. It looks like a great flyer if you add another $350.00 to the base price for all the electronics and motor. What suggestions do you have for a RTF bi-plane? I currently fly a Stryker with numerous upgrades and would like to keep both planes thats why I am looking for RTF.

Thanks

Jim

A friend of mine had the Ultrafly Ultimate. The 480 is probably just right if anything. Everything I've read or seen about this plane says it needs 250 watts or better to fly well. It does fly well if it's got the power.

He "had" what happened? My concern is weight, I want the power but not the weight, I'm looking into the Ultrafly B\12\10 and B\12\08. If anybody has any information please let me know.
