Help!
Which airplane I should buy from X-UAV Decathlon or Bobcat

At present, I am very interested in two airplanes of X-UAV, but now I only can pay one plane as I have not too much money. So I will buy one first. But I don't know which one has a better performance, which one can fly quickly and flexibly, and which one is more suitable for professional trainning. Can any one help me to choose whether I should buy Decathlon or Bobcat?

If you give me a suggestion or your experience, I will be very appreciated.

What do you intend to do with them, what do you mean by "professional training?

The Decathlon is a scale aerobatic trainer. The Bobcat would appear to be more suitable as a first jet.

The Decathlon could be a trainer for beginners only if using a buddy box with an instructor. The Bobcat might work with a buddy box if it has fairly mild flight characteristics as some foam jets do.

Thank you.
My friend has extended his trainning center, so I want to buy this warbird as a gift to give him.
From your suggestion, I understand Decathlon may be more suitable for his trainning.
I will consider buying it.
