man..its a hard call..they are both great planes..The Cessna is a bit faster and flies longer...The Citabria is a floater and a very scale like in its flight..a bit easier to handle in small area...Rite now If I had to pick it would be the Cessna. It flies nearly twice as long and is easy to add steering nose gear..I'm a ROG guy and fly both of these planes on pavement..my Cessna has steering nose gear so it has the added dimension of taxi capability...a bit difficult to add steering tail wheel to Citabria in comparison.

Alright, now its cessna or wait for piper cherokee. Should I get the brick and the new foam body and all that which costs about 75. Or would you rather wait for the piper cherokee in the summer that might cost about 200? Sorry for these questions, heh I just don't know what to do.

Edf Rtf

Hey guys,

Which RTF EDF would you recommend? I've never flown EDF before but I'm so in love with the idea its untrue! So far I've read about 3 on here:

Earl Jet
Jetscream
Estes Turbo Thruster

All three seem to come well recommended from various quarters. So which do you recommend if you could only get one.

I should point out that I don't think the Jetscream has made it to the UK yet however. Though I may be wrong!

why is it difficult? is it because the rudder is too thin? or hard to make a linkage from servo to it's current position? cg?

AH E-chargers Flying Wing?
It's pretty small and looks like it weighs too much, but my opinion is never enough...
Any thoughts ?
