Default Ultra micro jets

I am considering wether or not to buy one one of these. My main two considerations are the Eflite UMX mig 15 and the Great Planes Rx-R F-86 saber. I fly spectrum, so the radio will not be an issue for either. Which one of these planes is better, or are there other choices that would be better than these?

I suppose the question is are you a communists or a capitalists?  Just kidding.  I bought the F86 Sabre and haven't had a chance to get it in the air.  It has a lot a cool detail and seems a bit fragile.  I suppose all micro jets are.  I will let you know how it flies.

Personally, I'm planning on going with the Mig, even though I'd prefer the Sabre as a model. The main reason is the Mig offers the AS3X 3 axis gyro, which should make the Mig a really smooth flyer. Also, the Mig looks more scale, as it appears Eflite put more R&D into this model and was able to keep the nose inlet more true in appearance- it's not a "flying toilet paper roll" as someone else put it. Additionally, the Eflite fan unit appears more robust than the one in the Sabre, somehow it seems like it has more in common with the larger EDFs. If you have Spektrum, you won't have to deal with the big goofy adapter on the back of your TX to make the Mig work as you would the Sabre. Overall, I think you're getting more for the money with the Mig. The only downside is nobody really knows when the thing will actually be available, and batteries have a proprietary plug, but this is easily remedied with some snips and a soldering iron. Or just buy Eflite battery packs.

As far as availibility on the mig, I am guessing 2 months tops because I ordered the corsair when it first came out and had to wait about 2 months to get it.
