Twisted Hobbys 32" or 24" for indoor

Hi guys.
Twisted hobbies 24" or 32" for indoor ?
or a Skywing ?
Flying area is exactly 1 basketball court size

I want a plane that will fly slow, not just hover & not need to be flown fast.
From the few vids Ive seen, I get the impression a 24" may just be too small a wing ?
EPP rather than fragile depron, I want to try stuff, not worry about it breaking.

Any suggestions.
Does it make alot of difference if its a laser/crack or whatever ?
Cheers

600mm size models are only required for very small places (less than 15 feet). It is a myth and misconception that a 600mm size model will fly better than an 800mm size model in a gym or hall.
The smaller they are, the harder they are to fly. They are also harder to see. they also need smaller electronics which are usually MORE expensive except the batteries.
Pros
Escape more injuries due to being lighter
Can fly in VERY small spaces
More challenging flights
More fun flights (depends on Pilot)
Some gyms/halls have weight restrictions that would not allow an 800mm

Cons
Harder to fly
Harder to see
Not suitable outside unless little wind
More expensive electronics
Shorter flight times

The way i see it, considering that a 600mm is only a few bucks cheaper, there is no real benefits of going smaller than 800mm unless your space is VERY tight or your indoor site has weight restrictions.
But all been said, they can be wicked fun and that's really the reason they are so popular.
As usual, you buy whatever floats your boat!
P.S. IMO an MXS-C is the most robust.
