Looking for a good pattern/F3A style aircraft
I'm looking to get a new pattern/F3A style aircraft as I love how they fly on rails, but I'm not sure which one is lauded as the "best". I have a spare Castle ICE 50A ESC and 4 HS-65MG servos so something that "size" is cheapest/easiest for me.
A few I found are:
3DHS 48" Super Vyper
Extreme Flight 48" Vanquish MKII F3A
What other great pattern style aircraft am I missing?

Its probably my favorite plane to fly but you should really just set these planes up with low rates and fly pattern. Use the closest holes on the aileron and elevator arms. Rudder can go all the way out as it helps with runway manuevering.
Every pilot needs a pattern plane, its the only one I can point to and say.
"That made me a better pilot!"
When set up with low rates it really forces you to focus on drawing clean lines.

+1 on the Osiris. Completely agree with Joe. I've had a 62" and I'm now assembling the 47". It was actually Joe that recommended it to me when I was talking to him at SEFF last year (2011).
