Which plane should i get

please vote and i dont have a dx6i yet do you think i would be able to fly the su-26 still?
and i do have alittle experence cuz i have the t-28 and the corsair but my one servo broke o the corsair so the whole point of this poll is because if im going to buy a new servo for the corsair im going to just by all new foam parts for it to and thats 60$ so i could just make another plane also for about 60$
o and the p-51 is 50$

While I haven't personally flown a Su-26 from what I've heard dual rates or expo are a must for that plane. I'm in a similar situation as you. I'll be ordering a UM Stryker soon and have to also buy a Dx6i to fly it. I would recommend you just also buy a Dx6i with your plane so you can have an easier time flying it, plus it has a 10 model memory and will work for pretty much any BNF plane.

If you want to fly it at night then that eliminates 5 out of your 6 choices, and the 6th will only be flyable if it's very calm.

Suggestion...Save for a DX6i.
Tough to resist picking up another plane i know,but the fact that you want another plane tells me you will be staying in the hobby.
And the DX6i will be one of the best investments you can buy if your going to continue to fly these micros and get new planes.

Sure it's cheaper to just pick up another plane,or parts to build one but you will always be wishing you had a DX6i to make those adjustments that suit your flying style.

Also having the DX6i will allow you to buy the BNF models,and you never know...you could decide after flying these micros for a while that you want a bigger plane,like a Super Cub.
You will already have a tx and will be able to pick up a BNF cheaper than a RTF.

Don't waist your time with a DX5e,yeah it's cheaper but it does not have any programing features like expo,model memory (DX6i has 10 model memory) so you have to rebind it to each plane before use.

Just something to think about.

Sounds like a good plan. Most park flyer sized planes can handle a fair amount of wind. I've flown foamys in up to 15 mph with no problem. The main reason I'm heading to ultra micros right now is because I'm in college and there isn't really any room for a full park flyer in my dorm room. I'm sure you'll love flying slightly larger planes. They definitely fly with more authority and groove better. Happy Flying!
