Default Which is king of the ARF's

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone had flow all of the recent classic ARF's and how they compared, both in flying and quality ?
I was thinking of the Dirty Birdy, Phoenix, and now the Curare.

I was also wondering why the production run was so short?


regards

Having first hand experience with all three aircraft, (IMO) the Curare is the best of the bunch. If you know your aircraft set-up, the P-7 can be made into an invincible pattern weapon. The Dirty Birdy is also very good, and with some set-up knowledge can also be a first class ride.

Quailty wise, I would rate as follows:
1. Curare
2. P-7
3. Dirty Birdy.

Why the short production run? Very small market. Grow the market (increase demand), supply will increase.

Note, the P7 has been discontinued for quite a whole now. If you find one in a shop I'd grab it. There arent anymore coming.

There are two Phoenix 7's on Eb-y in the uk.

The seller is offering international shipping, if you're interested.

I was really keen to get one of these, then bought 2x Curare ARF's (whilst they are still available). Seems like I made a good choice.
