I like my original prodij's they are tough, really tough. Fly in almost all conditions and turn really nice, if you are into 60" MOM races. They are also easy to repair, if you have an accident.

Flying speed comparison possibly only valuable if actualy measured or by man on man flight.
um, yeah..... I think that's a given....Should I have mentioned the fundamentally obvious?

There are a heap of posts in here comparing like for like planes, especially the first bunch of posts.

It may not be a useful thread for you, but for me it's got some good info from guys comparing planes they own.......and that's good enough for me


P.S the OP wanted to know the "hottest" 60" racer....I'd say the naked carbon one sitting in the sun on a hot aussie day......you don't get much hotter than that!

No, it's still the same. Never had an issue with strenght with the Ocelot.

I have flown some "delicate" models never any issue. All composite models have a snap factor. The rule is land smooth and controlled and your model will be fine. Cart wheel, inverted, wing tip first landings are all a gamble.

Frame strenght is also a factor if you plan on flying in +40mph winds with ballast load that is greater than model, but for normal flying all models listed are good.

Yeah, seem like the 60" birds is out of evolution. I'll probably go for wakumann's suggestion and get the chepest 100" plane I can find :-)
