Default Help with next airplane

Hello, I was wanting to hear from a few experienced pilots that can help shine the light on my next airplane. I want an arf that is going to be cheap, around $150 or less. I have flown a lot, and I am experienced with aerobatic maneuvers and would like to continue fast, aerobatic flying. My last crash was a phoenix 40 size decathlon that I have flown for over a year. I crashed this weekend when I let a maneuver go lower than what I should. It wasn't really a failure in skill....just judgement. I want to know what some of you would suggest for a next airplane. I want it to be faster than my decathlon was, 40 size, under $150, and aerobatic. I have looked at the following models

Ultimate biplane 40

phoenix extra 300

powerline edge 540

How do they fly? What can I expect? Thanks

Default RE: Help with next airplane

i was once at your stage and i progressed form a trainer to a bi plane, it was a david boddington barnstormer and boy it was brilliant to fly. the extra wing gives it allot of stability for manouvers. and if i was in your situation the ultimate will probably be the best option as the extra and edge are and will be a little harder to fly.
