You've had a mini T28, but those are nowhere near as good as the regular sized Park Zone T28. I've flown a few of those and they are really nice airplanes, especially for the money. I think they are like $179 or so plug-n-play, so it's well under your budget. I'de say at least see if you can bumb a few laps on someone else's and I am pretty sure that will convince you it is nowhere near the same thing as the min one.
Only thing is, I don't really like buying planes that are cheap...nothing wrong with them, i just dont really like them.
At your #250 bugfet, you're right at the point that you need to spend a little more if you want to step up, but it's a big
step. For about $400 you can get into any number of really good, top quality 48" span 3D style aerobatic planes, and you can either fly them strictly for sport, or use them to move into 3D.
With this set up, the Extra EXP is not really any more difficul;t to fly than a T28, but it sure is a lot more capable. Quality wise, there is absolutely no comparison. Don't let that fact it is a 3D capable plane put you off....check the videos.
