Super Cub vs. Super Decathlon

I have a Hobbyzone Super Cub.
I was curious about how it compares to the Hobbyzone (or Parkzone?) Super Decathlon.

I really like how docile and capable the Super Cub is.
But would like a little spice..figure maybe a more acrobatic or nimble, faster flyer perhaps the Decathlon??

I would like the same flight time..if it doesn't have that, then some worthy tradeoff for the lack of flight time.

By most accounts the Parkzone Decathlon is the only real dog in the Parkzone line up. All have problems with cheap electronics but the Decathlon is way underpowered as well. Even if you have to stay with ARFs there are better choices out there. Perhaps take a look at the Spitfire, or for faster, but not aerobatic, there is the Hobbico Cessna 182.

SuperCub vs De-CRAP-Lon

Well I agree. I've been flying both. Even with a Venom Fireball 370 micro motor in it, the Decathlon doesn't come close to the SC. Xport is not an option either with it. On the SC it's definitely an addition to the Fun with DROP MODULE CAPABILITY.
