Zero Fighter -- OK Model Zero-E vs GWS Zero

Anyone has experience on both models?

OK Model Zero-E
http://www.okmodel.co.jp/catalog/air...o-E/index.html

GWS Zero
http://www.gwsus.com/english/product/airfly/012.htm


Main difference is Balsa OK Zero-E vs Foam GWS Zero
and Flying weight: 850~900gram vs 350~395 gram

Dimension and wing area about the same,
Wing Span: 1040mm vs 850mm
Wing Area: 15.8dm2 vs 13.6dm2

What's the main difference in flight characteristics? Performance?

Few questions about the OK Zero

1/ is it a new version or still the same old OK Zero? (AKA Pilot Zero)
2/ Is this OK Zero available in US? or where can we order.


for almost the same size like you said, I would
go for the lighter one, more agile, more maneuverable.

Thanks.

The GWS zero is cheap. The slope glider comes unpainted so you can finish it to your personal tastes. GWS Zero flies fantastic after you do the wing incedence modification. If you take your time it can be made to look very scale.

It's the old Pilot Zero released in 2004 if I were not wrong. Not sure whether it's available in USA.

I just want to know how good a Balsa Zero is compared to GWS Zero. Thanks!

I have the GWS Zero, My friend had the Pilot Zero in 2004.
He worked for FUJITSU and bought the Pilot Zero in Japan.

I like the GWS zero better; It is extremely maneuverable.
But the Pilot Zero is also a nice one. GWS zero is to be
considered as best bang for the bucks. But the Pilot Zero
looks much nicer. For me, there is no such thing as a bad Zero.

here is the performance of the GWS zero
