GWS C-130 vs EAM C-130

I have been eyeing the EAM C-130 for sometime. I now have been looking at the GWS C-130. I am trying to discern which one of these I should buy. Cost not being the issue, which C-130 woul any of you recommend? From what I see the EAM is powered by 4-280 motors and has a 60" wingspan while the GWS can be purchased with either 2-300 series motors, or 4-50 (ala A-10 size?) motors and has a 44.1" wingspan. I am just curious as to the opinions of which one seems to have the most power and has the best flight characteristics. I will probably play with various payload toys such as paratrooper or small light objects but nothing elaborate.

If anyone recommends the GWS version, please state which one. Or if anyone can point me to a good comparative review of these two distinct models I would appreciate it. The only reason I hesitate purchasing the EAM right now is that the GWS just seems to look more scale especially in the nose when compared with the photos of the REAL C-130's but this might just be a misjudement on my part.

Thanks for any info on these planes.
