Alternatives to an addiction

Just out of curiosity, is there an alternative to a Addiction X or XL? A friend who has been flying 3D for many years and has owned and flown hundreds of 3D aircraft (whenever anyone in my club gets a new 3D airplane, he is usually the one who sets it up and test flies it) told me that the best pure 3D airplane he ever flew is the Addiction XL.

I trust his judgment, and am about to get one, but I was just wondering for my own sake if there are any alternatives to this airplane. Good alternatives. An alternative that is 95% as good, but cheaper in price. You know what I mean.

thanks.

Trust me on this......check out t h e p r o f i l e b r o t h e r h o o d . c o m and be enlightened!!!! Mojo .40 will blow ANY Addiction out of the water!! Yes, it's a profile and it WILL fly better than the Addiction for 1/2 the cost. First time the Addy hits the ground kinda hard that's it....not so with a Mojo. It is AMAZINGLY tough. I really hope you'll check out this stuff....I'd almost guarantee you that you'll be amazed. Any Q's please PM me!!

Check out Extreme Flight planes. They might not feel as light and floaty as an addiction, but they are vastly more capable airframes.

Can you EP that? Looks nice.

BTW, I own EF, PA, and 3DHS. They are all quality models. They are all different and I do like my ADX and may purchase an ADXL one day. I think they are a little overpriced compared to EF and 3DHS and will only buy their models during the once or twice a year sales.

Yes a bunch of guys on the ProBro site have their .40 size slabs "E" powered. They know how to get crazy power using very inexpensive motors/controllers. You should check it out!!
