What 50cc Yak 54 to get?

Hi guys,
My Dad has moved from his trainer and wants a 50cc Yak 54. There are so many, so i got him to choose 3, he selected QQYAK 54 86", Aeroworks 50cc, and a Toc 1 30%. Which one should i buy him?
I have a DA-50 and a Evo 58GX2, so either or should work just fine.
Note: I want the plane to be durable because i have seen some of his landings and they are not so perfect, it should be fairly big so it is easy to see in the sky, have good power:weight ratio for advanced manuevers for me, and lastly have a light wing loading so i can slow it down for him for his first couple months of flying it.

The Aero-Works fly’s great, but the landing gear block isn't much to be desired. As for the TOC 1 IMO it doesn’t fly as good as the Aero-Works but is much more durable. I haven't flown the QQ but from what I hear it is a great performer also.

Just as an FYI the landing gear blocks are much stronger on all of the new 50cc Yaks, Fearless's was from the first batch.

How much is a new fuse for and upgrade. It gets a little tricky trying to always land on egg shells. That is really my only complaint about the plane, but since you guys resolved that issue it is a winner all around.

IMveryHO, not sure a 50cc Yak is an appropriate second plane, but I flew the QQ yak and loved it.... but you better grease your landings as the landing gear block isn't too beefy... Fine if you hit all your landings, but not too forgiving....
hence the reason it may not be a godd second plane....among other reasons

Re: What 50cc Yak 54 to get?

Of the three you mentioned... the QQ 86" would be my choice... I have one here now for review and am well into building it... see thread here:

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/m_52..._1/key_/tm.htm

It is a beautiful offering and will come in at about 16.5 lbs and 1420 sq. in.

Super nice...
