I love Hobby-Lobby, so don't take this wrong, but when I started in this hobby last August, I called them about the Wingo/Soarstar and they pooh-poohed the SS, much like was mentioned above.

As I was trying to limit my expenditure, I went with the SS for $129.

I love this plane, and the gearbox (1.85:1) is quiet and efficient. In fact, I'm thinking of ordering a spare GB/motor for other planes. ECMC (now GreatHobbies.com) has them with motor for roughly $27 Canadian.

HL is just responding to the lack of sales of the Wingo vs. SS/Poppy. They were a staunch Wingo supporter, so they have to downplay the SS in their ads to save a little face. Money talks..........
