After owning ~30 planes the last 5 years, here are my favorite rc airplanes and I currently fly them most:

1. 105" 35% Hangar 9 Extra 300 w/ DLE-111 on Mejzlik 28x10
2. 48" EXP Edge
3. 3D EPP Yak 54 (alternatively any 32" EPP from Twisted Hobby, like the Crack Yak LITE but I don't own it)

At the moment, my 3 would be from my collection

3DHS 89" Slick with DA-60
3DHS 70" Velox with Mintor 22
Twisted Crack Pitts

My 105" H9 Extra is just not a great 3D plane for me compared to the Slick. It draws pretty lines though and has replaced my Osiris for precision.

I have 3 other 30cc planes that size and it was hard to pick just one. They are all so sweet.

That's interesting Enterprise as I'm the exact opposite. Flew the 104" AJ Slick on a DA-120 and it was just okay, but i wanted something a bit more precise and locked in for IMAC and something that flew bigger feeling in the air, so I chose the H9 300 and did the FG build thread on it the first week it came out. IMHO the Slick doesn't quite match the flight characteristics of the H9 Extra 300. I do fly a mix of 3d and IMAC though. It's funny how there's no one plane beats all. Something I did discover the last couple years however is that the 35% planes fly SOOO much better than my 33% and 30% Yak and Edge's. Not even a comparison.

My buddy just last week bought the 3DHS 103" 330SC as he too doesn't like the slicks after owning and flying most of them from the 51" to the 104". He doesn't hate them but he says they don't even compare in his opinion. I do want to try flying it as I've never flown the 330SC. My hat goes off to AJ though as he designs amazing planes, I just think they're a tiny bit overhyped that's all. I'd still pick one above 98% of the models out there!!!

You analysis is dead on. I had a 72" 330SC and I too did not love it coming off the slicks. I sold it. The H9 just does not excel at maneauvers I like to do like knife edge spins and hovering (mainly because the 3 blade I have to use and small ailerons). It flies super precise and easy and it is my first pick for IMAC by far. I am not going to get rid of this plane, just at this point I enjoy smack 3D more. I get to see a EF 104 Extra for the first time this weekend so I'll see the difference I hope.

I have done a lot of the Slicks and for now I am going to try Edges and Yaks and see where that goes.
