Default Extra 300 just for IMAC:H9 or AW??

Hi guys! I'm planing to built a plane just to fly IMAC (Not Freestyle!).
For some reasons it can't be a 42%.
My favorite plane is the EXTRA 300. So I need your help to decide between the Hangar 9 and Aeroworks airframe.
What do you guys think about it? Thank's!

I know that the Hangar 9 and PAU Extras perform very, very well.

As far as the Aeroworks goes, I can not comment.
I have never seen one, let alone fly one.

Hope this helps you some.

I have owned both and kept the H9 300. For me the H9 300 feels so much more connected. Snaps are much better(stops on a dime). I had to totally relearn snaps with the H9 because I was stopping the snap to fast. Wind tracking is much better. I have to spend a lot less time on the rudder in wind to keep the tracking straight. To me the H9 300 is an 35% IMAC machine. It is hard for me to decide what to fly IMAC, my H9 40% Sukhoi or the 300. BTW, I removed the all the components from my AW 300 to the H9 300. So everything is exactly the same with the two. However I felt the AW 300 flew better with the 29/10 Mej prop and I like the 28/12 with the H9.

I've flown both and like the H9 better as well. I'm not really into to imac but mine was setup and flown in imac by the previous owner. The AW flew great too but if you get bored with imac i felt the h9 was funner for flying 3d as well.
If you see me posting that means I should be working!
