I can't put that plane down and am buying batteries like crazy so I don't have to wait for them to charge. It IS very fast for a new guy but if you can master the Cub then this plane is for you. Very stable and great stall characteristics.
If you're going to spend the money then why upgrade a plane when you can have another in case something happens. My Cub is decomissioned right now becasue the motor keeps cutting out. HH is sending me a new one but it is out of stock.
I guess I have to fly the T-28 and my goal is to not crash! Whatever you're decision is make it yours!
I think money is an issue for OP and therefore the reason for his question. If money is an issue, I don't think someone with that consideration will wanna buy a plane that one might actually crash and destroy.
