RES Question

I am looking into getting an RES plane and was looking for some feedback
from those in the know. I am currently looking at the following planes (no
particular order):

1) Soprano RES
2) AVA
3) Danny RES
4) Topaz

I am most familiar with the AVA, but the others look interesting as well.
Anyone flown more than one of these? How do they compare? Why do you like
the {fill in the blank}?

Thanks in advance

RE: RES Question

I have two Topaz's and love them both. One has the original airfoil, and
one has an airfoil just like the AVA (more camber and thus a bit slower
with less penetration). I prefer the original airfoil (better
penetration).

The Topaz is extremely strong and durable.

The new Topaz also has a smaller spoiler. I prefer the original wide
spoiler. I fly my Topaz with a Futaba Gyro in the mid section just below
the wing operating the rudder on final approach.

You can get the Topaz from Alberto at Hobby Club.
