Freewing Stinger vs Freewing F22

So I am wanting to pickup a high speed 64mm edf jet. I am down to either the Freewing Stinger 64 or the Freewing F22. I will be putting landing gear on the Stinger since I really don't like to hand launch.

So what's everyone's thoughts?

I sold my Stinger64 and have about 8 flights on the F22. The Stinger didn't work for me. The F22 is great, and love it. I upgraded the F-22 immediately so I never flew it on stock power system.

Stinger: really fast even stock, sport jet flying (not my thing-knife edge capable), needs flown fast, lands fast and takes some room, very easy to hand launch.

F-22: good speed if not fast, very maneuverable, fun scale flying, can fly super slow (slow passes), can land pretty slow, little harder to hand launch but not bad.

If you want speed go Stinger probably. If you like scale go F-22. I used the gear on the F-22 a few times, pretty easy to take off and land.
