The offical "Should I get this?/ Is this plane better than that plane" thread.

All who want to find out if they should get something(or is something better than another) inquire here.

After getting tired with people making "Should I get this plane?" and "Is this plane good?" threads, I have now made an official thread.


EDIT: Sticked!,Thanks!

i second sonic, the palm-z/nano hawk is way worth the money, nothing like buzzing the animals and friends around the house, it really is so priceless to have full 2-ch flight in you living room.

Yes... but only if you have Aeroaces (or similar) already. These planes are reallllly limited.

Completely unflyable outside in daylight, nearly useless outside at night.

I flew both my nanno hawk and avion at the local mall today.
The many spectators all agreed the avion was the far superior flier.
I give the avion to some of the mall spectators to try, who had never
flown a plane before, and they all flew it easily on their first try.
the same could not be said of the nanno hawk.
Fpond the avion on ebay for $34.95 which is $5.00 more than the
nanno hawk at Wal-mart, but well worth it in my opinion

The avion(which means "plane" in french) has way better electronics...but it is not nearly as durable if any one gets one first put tape on the root of the vert stab...mine broke off and the plane was ruined...on the first flight..and megatech laughed at me and hung up! (not kidding!)

Do you have more info on 4 channel models from Kyosho?

Do you have official info and/or pics or is this still reasonable
speculation at best?

Is the Cessna any good? That would probably be my next buy, but Im afraid it wont handle wind very well, although flight characteristics look sweet.

Is the Aerosoarer the Nano Hawk, or are they two different aircraft?

The aero and nano are two different planes- the nano is better.
