ARF Vector vs ARF Nobler What's The Diff?

All things equal, say with a nice OS Max S 35 and the same primo fuel set-up, What would be the difference in performance?

I have both, TF 57 Nobler with a Fox 35 and the Vector 40 had a OS LA 40, ( now converted to electric). In my case the Nobler is a much better flyer, but it is significantly lighter than the Vector by about 10 ozs . Mine were both built from kits. The ARF is probably heavier so you might need more power like an LA 46.

Yes it is. The Vector was my first full size stunter and I built it a little heavy. It originally weighed 45 oz (dry) with the LA40 but now it is more like 49oz with battery/electric.

The Nobler on the other hand was built as per the instructions and ended up at something like 39oz (dry)
