I'd go with the Electrifly Rifle. It's local and cost the same (or less after shipping expenses)
It's proven and supported.

Either one you use, most are set up on a 450 (28mmx36mm) inrunner (about 2800-3500kv, 1500-1800mah 3s

Use a 2200 size battery - needs the weight up front. A 2W-20 or Bl-15 on 4 cells and 4.1 prop would be a nice pairing. Easier to launch than the Rifle and easier to see.

Yeah, I think I will stay away from HK also. I would rather spend a little more locally and have a guarantee that I get what I ordered.

I heard too many horror stories about HK.

I was thinking of getting getting this bird also as I have a few (12) 2200 40c 3s lipos.

But I went with the rifle as tower hobbies currently has them for $94.
Get the bird, with a phoenix 54 amp ESC $54. I don't like the recommend servos. I used Hitec 65 servos

The lipos are like $17.

I used stock motor for 2 weeks. What a blast!

Then use a HET motor and carbon spar in the wing and hold on
The older guys at the club got scared. Lol
