Since this is my first scale-build and my first war-plane maybe the DynaFlite be a better option. After all I'm not going to enter a Scale Competition with my first war-bird. Specially since my flying skills are at a trainer level at this point.
I had a DF PT-19 for a few years with a Saito 150 which was my first large plane and it was a piece of cake to fly. 150 is more than enough power. Take off and scale flight was usually 1/2 power. Figured it was time to get rid of it when I started doing 4 foot high inverted fly by's. Got me a 1/4 scale Pitts! BTW, there is a lot of building in that kit. DF did not do much work for you but if you like to build you will enjoy it.
