Which Parkzone Ultra-Micro is the best in your opinion?

In this thread we'll discuss out of all the Ultra-Micro's Parkzone has come out with, which is your favorite? I myself am partial to the T-28 Trojan. It's light and great for some 3D in my opinion. If anyone also owns a UM Mosquito, how does it fly compared to the P-51's aerobatic nature?

What does RC Groups also think about the Parkzone's upcoming A6M5 Zero 300? News is theres going to be a UM version, BNF, PNP, and ARF version available. Parkzone announced to be shipped to the US early August of this year

I have to go with my T28 as well. Loved the big one so I bought the UM and they are both awesome planes.

I also like my micro T-28, but my micro J-3 Cub attracts more attention when I fly it indoors.

Of the UM's I'd probably have to pick the T28 as the winner, but the e-flight UMX Sbach and Stryker are much better planes.

Isn't the UM Stryker from PZ? any ways i haven't got any of them yet but that could all change when i can get my hands on the E-flite UMX Mig EDF.

You're right, my bad - Stryker is a parkzone. It's probably the most fun you can have for the least money of anything on the market right now. It will fly in more breeze than the other um's would even think about and do tricks that all the others combined. 10-15 mph wind is duck soup for the um stryker.

I would say UMX Beast, but for Parkzone, then the Stryker.

I just picked up a Gee Bee R2, not had chance to fly it yet, looks nice tho. Any one had a chance on the Gee Bee? The Sukhoi was quite nice.

I love my UM T-28 for nice and easy scale flying and some aerobatics. Mine has a light kit so we do fly at night when the wind is dead. The UM Corsair is more fun for stunts. I also have the UM mosquito and really like it too. Mine needed some lead in the nose but pretty aerobatic but I don't have the P-51 to compair.

Best for what? Beginner? 1st 4 ch? Speed, aerobatics? I see it as a multiple choice question with not enough info to decide the answer. Having said that, I'll toss this in. The Carbon Cub SS is a handful. I finally got the CG right but find that it is twichy in wind. Most all of these UM planes, from whatever company, fly well in calm wind.

GeeBee, hands down for style, wow factor and incredible flight characteristics , while not a micro 3D machine, like the beast, it does its job very, very well, even in moderate winds (hey, it is fun to fly it @ negative airspeed!!!)

For Indoor flisht or 3D, which do you think would suit my nephew better. The T-28 or the Mosquito. I really love the look of the Mosquito over the T-28, but the Trojan has great ailerons.

get what you love to look at. Where I live flying is not always suitable; so I resort to just looking at my planes. and have no venue for indoor flying

The Champ is very good if you are a beginner. Everyone can fly it.,after some instructions. I like my T-28, but I am not able to do so much aerobatics. Maybe it's time for some new batteries, looks like it need more punch.
