it depends on your skill level and what you want from a plane...

the glider will be easier to fly and will glide, the spitfire is harder to fly and wont glide if its your first plane get the glider.

this model is appealing to me, just because I was looking at the easyglider, but this is brushless, 2.4ghz ANNNND RTF

This definately looks appealing, as I too was going to get an EZ Glider Pro. Definately an awesome deal though. After watching that video though, the glide performance doesn't look as good. Hmm, not sure though. Anyone else agree?

I know it flies slow, but I think its toooooo slow, to the point it may get boring.

Well, with the 480 on it, it is definately capable of flying fast. I think it flying slow is actualy better though..... You can pin point and stay in thermals a bit easier.

I saw this plane at NEAT fair! Very nice, have to pick it up when it comes out. Was going to get a parkzone corsair but this is even better! It even does inverted!

Still AWD, Subaru
looking forward to some first hand reviews of this as I have a few great fields around the house.

I noticed it dosent have ailerons. Thats kind of lame on a plane so big. Or is it a rudder it lacks?

does the EZ glider have ailerons?

Random Flier
Well spotted. Similar size to the EasyGlider but a few differences:
PZ Radian: WS 2m, length 1.14m, 830g, RET only, more RTF / PNP with built-in brushless
Multiplex EasyGlider: WS 1.8m, length 1.12m, 880g, REAT, std is a geared Sp400

I have the EasyGlider and run it on 3S, but expect to update it to either a 480 or brushless when that wears out. Having ailerons is nice for control in windy conditions, so could be viewed as more "advanced". But I like the PZ idea of PNP/RTF with brushless (/PNP with Spectrum)...

Yea it's a shame there's no aielerons. I guess it's kinda marketed as an entry level glider. Still looks like a very nice plane though. Only time will tell.
