Pico vs Twin Jet? Recommendations?

Hi Gang

My Twinstar died loudly and gloriously on the weekend and I thought I would replace it with something a little more spritely and direct.

I'm looking at getting either the Pico or Twin Jet. I know there are heaps of threads on these two and they are both described as great planes.

But if you had a choice, which one would you pick? I'm looking for bang for buck so price must also be a consideration. Other considerations must be resistance to battle damage, stability in flight etc etc

Thanks to all in advance!

You can re-use your battery in the Twinjet but not in the Picojet.

1 - You should do a search on the Ezone on both planes. The answer is out there

2 - You can visit my web site, with both reviews and links to others, especially on the twinJet
http://plawner.net/

3 - As to tell you my recommendation, The TwinJet, from far..., very far away. More fun, more stable, better behavior, lots of potential for upgrades, if wished later, looks great, flies even better. The only down side maybe if you crash, as it is not as strong than the Pico. So, just don't crash it. Anyway, the TwinJet is a Knight of the sky, you don't combat with such a gorgious plane. And by the way, multiplex now has a White version, for this angel.

Patrick.
