Default Replacement for Modeltech Magic

Hello, I haven't posted here for several years, but in the past, found the info here very valuable. I am wanting to fly again and cannot find a Modeltech Magic. Does anyone have an idea what may be the closest plane to the Magic in terms of slow flying, ease, etc. thank you

Hobby Barn is now selling the Hanno Prettner Magic kits. They charge around $150 for a short kit. Read up about them in the Classic Pattern form.

Did you mean the Hanger9 Twist? If so the Magic is much more docile then the twist. I had a twist I didn't like it at all. I also a tango thinking it would be better not for me. thanks

I just saw TowerHobbies has the GreatPlanes Dazzler for $54.99... this is the kit, largely balsa and well equipped. I've been building one off and on for a while.. they can easily be built in a week or 2 though.. Its a really nice kit to build. I haven't owned the Magic, or flown the Dazzler yet.. but the cofigurations are similar.. and the Dazzler is known to be a crazy fun-flyer too.
