HobbyKing Yak 54 1.4m VS Yak 54 1.5m

With only $28 difference before counting for the cost of the missign ESC in the 1.4m yak they are effectively the same price.

So which one do you guys think will be better in the field?

Seems 1.5m is only asking for a 4s but 1.4m for a 6s.

Judging by this thread the new 1.4 Yak has a larger motor with lower KV, so it should be more reliable.
Smaller plane and bigger motor... not a bad combo

Also servos are listed as metal gear on the 1.4, DS538MG
The reviews on the servos seems to be good.

also the 1.4 is longer (1.3m) compare to 1.5 (1.2m) so that will sure affect the flight characteristics, maybe 1.4 be more stable?

Swarm if some one wants to buy this plane at $150: http://www.hobbyking.com/SwarmSale.asp?id=6801 Join code: 6801

I assembled and flew the 1.4M. I thought it flew very well until I did a hi-speed
pass. It fluttered, the elevator came off and into the ground. I just got the
1.5M in and it has a standard plastic pin swivel attachment instead of just a
foam hinge.
