Default accipiter badius vs firebird phantom

This will be my first plane. and i belive ive narrowed it down to these two. The reason im leaning towards the phantom is that its avaible at my local hobby shop and i could get it today ( I just took my last examand it is beautiful out) so of course im leaning towards the option of flying today especially since after the final i took today i think i deserve a present from me lol. But i just wanted to get everyones thoughts on these two models. pluses and minuses.

thanks alot

It would probably be much easier to get parts for the Phantom than the Badius especially if the local HS stocks them.

hat, I have to agree with sport. My bias for smaller, lighter lower kinetic energy models for newbies compels me to encourage the use of the smallest practical aircraft, given the destructive power of lawsuits. As for me and my older, weaker eyes along with my subjective need for more flight "realism" I must have the larger PFs to use with new modeling prospects.

I really like the EXCEED-RC ACCIPITER BADIUS motor powered gliders and still fly them in modified form that allows them to perform up to my expectations. I have been flying and modifying them for almost four years now. Time really does fly when you are having fun!

Once you master your current machine you might try an AB to see what you have been missing.

sport, speaking of the devil, before you fly into combat please check out some of the proven weapons mentioned in my e-mail signature under my blog urls.
