I think your list is "Out of proper order"
My curiousity got the better of me, so I had a look-see at #2.

So I'm just wondering if what I've heard is correct.

Launches fast but not with a lot of altitude
Wings have lots of flex during launch
Fragile airframe that won't hold up to continued dork landings
Not very user friendly for set up

Please correct me if I've heard wrong. At 2600 a copy I want to make sure its worth the value. Not just a plane to fly the first round and put away.

This is easy.

In no particular order:
Aspire C68
Aspire Disser
Aspire Spread Tow
Aspire Double Carbon
and oh all right, the Maxa, to keep it on topic with the thread.

Yes they can, a Sapphire can make the top ten, but that is about it...
