It HAD to happen.... two weeks AFTER buying the Cloud Surfer the Powerzone2600 (my first choice) was on Sale again!
I decided to get one, and I will assess those two aircraft to decide which one is truly best to use... and sell the other.

But I am pretty sure the PZ2600 will be a clear winner!!
More Wing Area... MUCH larger internal space.... Fore and Aft wheels... and a more suited Wing mounting system, thus MODS will be far more minimal!
And it can be configured with C-Tail and T-Tail formats.

The Canopy/Cockpit portion does look a bit goofy.... but I am used to it now....

Yes, I have a Bixler 2 (the second one), but I wanted a larger form of the same aircraft type to set up for longer range FPV.
I was going to get the PowerZone 2600 - it was the easily leading first choice - but it costs a "lot" (AUD $300 with shipping), and when the Cloud Surfer came in at AUD $118 including shipping, well that slaughtered the value stakes! I really wanted the PZ2600, but at that huge price difference it just did not add up. Though the PZ2600 was about AUD $170 on the last sale.... and that COULD come around again.... one day.....

The PZ2600 has a lot more internal room, but the Cloud Surfer has enough. The CS also has wider chord wings so I would say the total lift amount would probably come close the PZ2600 which has a narrower wing chord.
So anyway, the Cloud Surfer "won the contract"....
