Which too choose .. need your help

Looking for something acrobatic for my backyard and to fly with my 7 yr old son,He currently flys an Aero Ace which he loves. Anyway Id like something that will fly slow, be acrobatic and still go vertical if needed.. lol

I was looking at 2 wings

1. The Superflea from http://www.superflyrc.com/

OR

2. A light bug from http://www.lightflite.com/

anyone have both? My backyard is 50 x 120

Tough choice there. I have never flown a light bug, but I like it. Both would be great for your yard I think, but, if you go with the super flea, I would put a outrunner on it like its big brother the super fly (just a smaller motor of course) Maybe the Hyper Flea motor would do the trick.

God I hate to be rude but who the heck put this web page together!
Step away from the purple crayons! Little hard to fallow. Took me three reads to see how much the basic kit was! FYI $149! Not bad!

Ok so why does this thing have 3 servos? Isn't it just a flying wing like the super flea and the super fly? And wouldn't it be easier to fly if it were that way? thinkin of your 7yo son and noobs like my self.

They both look nice and I agree about the site .. Seems like the flea is faster but can also fly slower. .

im sooo confused. . .

the superfly is much more stable and can slow down and remain more stable then a flea.

i dont like the bug to much. might as well get an IFO

in my opinion

The RC Bug is by lightflite is great fun
the wing loading is only about 2.5oz / sq ft so its lighter than the superfly and will fly slower (very floaty if you use a 1oz battery) AUW 6.5oz
the bug is very aerobatic but stable and handles some wind very well
