For what it's worth I run the "other" brand. Our runway is concrete/blacktop. I use it when I'm having a good day. LOL. I land in cactus and various other desert plants often to just to mix things up. No issues.
But I bet I if I had those pretty Eflite's I could land on anything. That extra $40 would pay for the warranty service. Ya know for the no questions asked replacement policy.
