Default Too many to choose from! First Ultra Micro help!

Hey guys,

I'm an intermediate pilot and am looking to pick up my first ultra-micro tomorrow. Im deciding between these four planes...

1. ParkZone Ultra Micro P-51 Mustang
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...51D-Bind-N-Fly

2. ParkZone Ultra Micro Spitfire MK IX
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ctric-Airplane

3. ParkZone Pole Cat
http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...ctric-Airplane

4. ParkZone Ultra Micro T-28 Trojan
http://www.horizonhobby.com/products...n-bnf-PKZU1580

I would like something that I can do some nice aerobatics on, something durable, and something that can handle the wind? Which of these planes is best for me, or is there another plane similar in price that would be better?

Thanks!
-Cam

The polecat is a nice flyer but very sensitive. The spitfire is supposed to fix that characteristic ultra micro problem but i don't have one so i can't say.

The easiest to fly out of those is the T-28. Very stable and good in the wind. I have the T-28 and Spitfire and fly with friends who have the P-51, Sukhoi, and Polecat. Despite the AS3X system, the UM Spitfire is a handful and can become small real quick. The color scheme makes it easy to get disoriented too. However, once you get used to the twitchiness, even with dual rates and expo on, it is a fun, fun plane to fly.

I flew the T-28 and Corsair. The T-28 hands down is the best flyer. Up to 10 MPH winds.  Its a blast when you have it pointed into the wind and can hover it.  Just watch out for trees as it can get blown into them really easy.
