Funtana or AW Yak 1.20 or AW Extra 300 60-90

I am looking at one of the following airplanes for a new 3D airplane. Have been flying for about 3 years and currently have a Reactor 46 and Phoenix Topstar 60 (Flip3D or UCD 60) assembled and GP Reactor Bipe, Phoenix Yak 60, CMPro Quest 50, another Topstar and GP Extra 300SP in boxes. All my boxes are 50 sizers (except the Bipe) and I was intending this new airplane to be 90 or 120 sizer. The airplanes I am considering are

Aeroworks Yak 90-120 QB (Landed $460)
Aeroworks Extra 300 60-90 (Landed $430)
Hangar9 Funtana 125 (Landed $470)
Aeroworks Edge 540 46-60 (Landed $380)

The available engine I have are a 75AX, a FS91SII and a 120AX. Of these the 91 is actually reserved for the Bipe, I have 2 of them (one is in the Topstar)

I really want someone to pick my brains on this as I am really confused as to which will be a better choice. All of these are quite expensive due to shipping and customs. Since I also intend to get a Showtime 50, I will need to pick only one of these

Well i always say the larger the better. I was actually really close to getting the AW yak 54 before i got my chip hyde tunnel vision for a steal! but i love yaks, and you cant go wrong with aeroworks, now the funtana. I was considering that too, but i saw some posts about the covering turning yellow and i just dont think the airplane itself is as sturdy as the yak. Maybe a good sport flyer but hardcore 3D, i dont think so. These are just my opinions, with which ever one you do choose you will always be wanting others. Now if you really want to go large get a 30cc gasser and dump these nitro planes, those planes oughta turn some heads at the field!
Best Regards,

You don't have a big enough engine for the Yak or the Funtana. The 1.20AX will fly them pretty well but will not be a 3D beast. A Saito 1.80 or an OS 1.60 would work for glow engines or those two airframes. I've flown both, btw.

IMO, your best combo here is the AW Extra and the 1.20 AX.
