I'm sure you will notice.
It's a big difference when you get to fly them back to back.

Just got back from flying my 51 and my new 71 and MAN!!! I did the hardest, sickest tumble I've ever seen on my 51. I wish I had it on video. The wind was whipping pretty good today and I has downwind, full throttle... BAM!! It was just a big ol' red and white blur of awesomeness!!

I love this plane.

In terms of violence yes

The 51 goes from tame to insane at the yank of the sticks

Couldn't have said it better. The 51 can be just down right NASTY when you want her to be. The 71 is an awesome plane. Pure bliss. But it's not quite as violent as the 51. However, it absolutely rules at down low and slow. It's almost effortless. Feels like cheating!
