UFO or Micro 22?


I first build a Micro22, but i had lots of trouble with it. might have been a CG thing. then i saw the awsome thread about the USAF UFO. This thing was too easy to passup, and i had just scored some blucor at lowes. who knows where they got it, but yippie for me. built the ufo and i am having a blast. i have finally learned the high alpha slow fly method.. pretty much anyway. thinking about a plane now for som rudder to learn how to hover.

now for the question. should i build another 22 or something different? is the high angle of attack slow flying more difficult with a plane than with the ufo? i have a 30" foam extra, and i have trouble with the high alpha thing with it. or maybe i am not as afraid to doing the ufo around.. it really takes a beating. i want to learn some other things like knife edge and inverted flight as well. the ufo willprobably to the inverted thing, but not knife edge. also the roll rate is much smaller on the ufo than with a plane.

I fly glow powered SPADS and love them, but i can do the ufo thing in my dads back yard.. i have too many trees for my current skill level. with 2 kids it's hard to find time to go to the field and fly glow stuff. by the way.. i'm a little more than a beginner.. not quite intermediate skill level.

how's that for a ramble.. any help is appreciated.

Zert , the UFO and UFO type planes (that covers a lot of territory)seem to be able to do high A maneuvers pretty easily , the more conventional planes have to be flown into this state...If you like the UFO , try a Dart or Manta, they're simple and Fun and are good for maneuvering around trees, close in , high A...keep it light , you have the Blucor

it that one of the planes from slowfly or something.. looks very familiar.

i guess hovering would be easier with rudder below the CG as well as above.. might be my problem with the ufo.. rudder input causes a roll as well.
