This is a personal opinion, so your milleage may vary....
I own the Stryker and original Sbach. The Stryker is great in the wind, but my feeling is: the Sbach 3D (AS3X) is probably better (remember, I don't own one).
The Stryker can be flown very slow (harrier style). You can go a little slower with a Sbach but there's not much difference.
My feeling is: If you loved the Beast, get another one! If you loved the Beast in the wind, then, you'll love the Sbach. But if you want a totally different animal, the Stryker is a blast! I love the fact that it's not "another" typical airplane. It's much faster, the box is ultra small, so you can always bring it with you, even as a backup airplane. So, overall, it's a tough call, and you're probably the only one who can decide, based on your actual hangar... No matter what, I don't think you can be wrong with any of those two airplanes.
If you want to see how slow the Stryker is, check this video at 1:46 and 2:26. That's not a full harrier, and already, it's pretty slow.
