Parkmaster or Rc-Factory Yak?

My Rc-Factory Flash is finally busted after 1.5 years. It still flys though but after countless crashes and fixes, i need something new.
I was really impressed by this airplane, never had so much fun doing rc hobby.
So it was obvious to buy it's successor. But the Parkmaster also catches my eye. So far i read that it is supposed to be more rigid than the Yak due to the different material. And also faster.
But how durable is it and which one has better flight characteristics?

I have the Yak but not the Parkmaster. The Yak can fly very fast and is better than the Flash IMHO.

I do have both, but to be fair I have not flown the Parkmaster a great deal yet. The Yak is definitely better than the Flash.
I know lots will disagree, but I am not a lover of Elapor and I hate the fact that the Parkmaster is covered with small moulding circles. The U/C and mounting is poor on the Parkmaster and it is more expensive than the Yak, plus it doesn't come with carbon strengthening, only fibreglass rod.

I have owned all 3 , definatly prefer the yak to the flash and i sold my parkmaster as i could never get as comfortable flying it as the Rc Factory planes
I dint like the undercarriage on the parkmaster and the wire bent very easily , the cf undercarriage on the other 2 still hasn't given me any problems
I still fly both the Flash and the Yak as often as possible

slow but inefficient

Yak or Flash hands down over the PM. PM is just too fragile, even with carbon replacing the fiberglass. They all get a bit mushy (softening foam) after a while but it takes years on the Yak or Flash and only weeks on the PM.

Flying is about equal.

If you are in Germany, I guess it would be easier and cheaper to get it direct

I flew my Parkmaster some more today, its OK but I would say the Yak is better, I'm sure you are making the right choice.
