What is your true opinion on the Solo Pro models, and which is 'best'?

After researching it quite a bit, I have come down to the 270A and the 228P. Among these two, which would you prefer?

Can I find these at any rc supplier in the USA without having to order from another country?

How's it going:
As far as the 270a Very stable I like mine alot. I have 3, 260a i have a lot of fun with them. The 260a is a lot quicker than the 270a its kind of mellow i like it.
Hobby King has them it doesn't take that long, or try WOW HOBBIES their in Calif.

That is an interesting combination. The 270a, which I don't have, appears to be somewhat of an update to the 260a. The 228p is much larger and has a motor driven rear shaft.

My experiences and opinions:

Solo Pro 260a - This one goes on all of my camping trips. It's fun and pretty fast. With the stock flybar it experiences significant canopy and tailboom strikes when flying agressively. Skid quality varies. I use an Xtreme flybar w/med weights, Xtreme skids (although my stock skids were fine), Bravo Sx motor, cnc swashplate and 150mah battery.

Solo Pro 328a - My current favourite. Very stable and pretty fast. Stock flybar also limits agressive flying. I use Xtreme flybar and swash, cut down 220a blades and Xtreme 120sr motor.

Solo Pro 228p - Not much experience with this one yet. Initital impressions are that it is fast and easy to fly and controls are very precise at moderate speeds. But it can be pushed beyond the servo limits. I have not yet had it out in a larger area.

All of these models fly well in stock form if you don't do any agressive maneuvering. The 260a and 328a have some pcb quality issues. I have all of these bound to a NE J6Pro tx.

I like the SP328a because it is tame and larger. Using J6Pro transmitter.

As far as being able to get something local;
The Novus 200FP seems to be a duplicate of the Solo Pro 228. It also happens to be available from Hobby Zone, Tower Hobbies, and Hobby Town, who will be providing parts also. Similar to the assesment above (Solo Pro 228) this is a very stable bird, and capable of keeping me entertained on any sized field.

The Novus 200FP is a metal head version of the Nine Eagles Solo Pro 228p, which has a plastic head assy. The Novus metal parts can be used on the 228 if you so desire.
