Sbach 342 30e vs domin-8-trix plz help

Hey all this will be my first Balsa model. I Really want to buy the domin-8-trix be as i think it looks awesome. However the sbach seems to be quite popular. Which would be the better model and why? Apart fromh awesome looks i also have a power system for h Dom-8-trix including many batteries.

The only down side I can see is that there are plenty of people saying that the rear stabalizer assembly is weak and breaks in flight so I emailed hobby king on the topic. They say that the model has been revised with carbon fiber supports and steel so it is no longer an issue. Here are the links. What do you think?

If you already have the powertrain and batteries for the Domin-8-trix it seems a no brainer to go in that direction. Even if the tail is weak that should be obvious from an inspection when you get the kit - if it is all you need is a knife, some triangle stock, cyano and a scrap of covering and you should be able to reinforce it within 10 mins work.
