3 Watt-age Hotties, any suggestion and opinions?

Hey Guys,

I've been closely looking at Watt-age new planes.
The CAP 232.
Extra 330L (been out for a while).
Giles G-202.

All, with Watt-age cobalt (I think in one thread, we all agreed about it's performance)

By now, I know that some have already gotten it and has flown either one of them. So what do you do you think? Watt-age in my strong opinion of them, they are one, on top of my list when it comes to ARF airplane, simply the best.

3 planes HOT!!! In the market are they capable of bring the fun?

Yours,
genovia.

---P.S Sal C, I have been pacing myself with the DAW Extra 300
I want to get everything right and me, ready for it's maiden flight..

I have the Extra 330L, and the Giles 202 still in the box with the Wattage Cobalt in it. I never tried the Wattage Cobalt in any of these yet. I been flying the 330 with the geared 480 on 10 cells. I have coming, should come anyday now, a Astro geared 020 i'm going to stick in it!! I hope to soon start my Giles. I just have to get 3 servos and a esc for it. Already have a few recievers I can use. Hopefully have it ready for the Neat. I'm going to use a 2:1 gearbox on the Cobalt 400 after I try it DD, so I can go to 10 cells and have more power.
Get one, you won't regret it. The 330 is one of my favorite e-planes. I agree Wattage does make some nice arfs. I have the 330L and teh Crazy 8, which fly well and are nice arfs, and the Giles is nice too. I used to have the Wattage Whisper 2M glider a few years back, until the wing snapped in half when I was out of sight height, and turned into a rocket and hit the ground in about 3 seconds. Wasn't a nice sight.

Unless you're a total Extra fan, like Ryan and myself, I would look at the other two planes; Giles G-202 and CAP 232. These planes have a 4" longer wingspan and will fly with lighter wingloading than the Extra 330L.

If you are an Extra fan, then you may want to read my rather long thread in the Sport Planes forum.
