anyone compared ALFA and Wattage Migs

Has anyone flown both, the Alfa and the Wattage, I killed my Alfa Mig 15 this morning, landed directly on its nose from pretty high up (I'll post the gory pictures later) therefore I'm pretty down today and feel that I would like another Alfa mig, but the price is a little steep (x3) compared to a wattage mig 15 , so if anyone has feedback on both I would really appreciate it, that would help me make my mind

Thanks

Juan

tuff loss, your the first i've heard that crashed the alfa mig for a reason other than the wings fell off in air.

I have been looking for an answer to that question also..here is what I got....
1. Alfa wing prone to wings falling off..but they are very strong if put on right...rub off the paint and use good glue...also put a carbon spar in the wing you will be fine...this is what they say
2. Wattage mig underpowered and stalls easier.....
3. Wattage mig does not look as nice and heavier
4. Wattage is more durable....
*** This is about all I got.....when you find out more let me know..
