I'm sure 99% of us would be happy with either one.

Pick the color scheme you like the most and go for it.

I had both and went with the slick b/c of looks, the fact it looks bigger than the exta, and the slick is a little more adgile. Though both fly GREAT. The slick seems to like abuse more. The extra seems to grown a little when you abuse it(the extra makes noise like a grown when you put it in high G manuvers where the slick doesnt???) Not that either can't be crazly abused b/c I sure have done it to both and they both handle it just fine Basicly If you can do it wtih one the other will do it too

I really like the looks of the SC, its just awesome.

How would you compare their stability in harrier and hovering and knife edge. What do you mean when you say the slick is more agile, does it fly like a smaller plane or its more controllable?

Both are amazing in a harrier with a slight edge to the SC inverted. The slick locks into a hover better. Both took about the same amount of mixing in a KE which isn't very much.

As for the slicks agility I would say that it just reacts a little faster. See the extra you have to have about 55 of elevator throw and a rear CG to get the same response as the slick does at 45 and a slightly forward CG. It rotates a little faster too(not by much though) Both plane are very very close in flight performance. If you like the looks of the extra you wont feel like you missed anything buy not going with a slick and same goes for the other way around.
I chose the slick over the extra b/c its agility,looks ,and easier in a hover.
Though the extra is smoother and a bit more stable.

They are both going to be awesome, although I think if I had to chose one, it would be the SC. I love the looks and it is a great flying plane! The slick will be great too though. Just get the one you think looks best You would not regret either!

+1 Just go with the one you like the looks of

They both are completely awsome and you will be happy with either one.

I have both the 71 and 72 and my favorite is the one that I am flying at that time.
