Which of these F-86 to get?

Now leaving out the discussion of where I the listed seller of these, what would you recommend for a large back yard, I'd also prefer the one that could slow up a bit as I'm not into speed.

Art-Tech F-86

Mini-F86 with Gyro:

Nano F-86

Where I fly is 2 acres completly surrounded by trees, but it can get breezy sometimes. My skill level is I fly a 40" Foamy Corsair with no problems and am starting to do things like knife edges, but still fly pretty boring circuits. I really enjoy flying as slow as possible...sounds silly but I enjoy it.

The Art-Tech model is the only F86 one that has my respect simply because they didn't make bass mouth inlets like JPower/SkyAngel and they have properly proportioned wings unlike the Great Planes model. I don't have one, but if I did, it would be the Art-Tech model.

It is supposedly a little more sluggish than the others but I like scale.
