Which 120cc airframe would you choose

Ok I'm getting back into the hobby after a 8 year hiatus. I'm looking to find the best 100 to 120cc airframe on the planet I like banging the sticks at the field and yelling "watch this". Lol. So if you had to choose any on 3d/ freestyle plane you could not live without what would it be. And I wouldn't be opposed to the 120" bushmaster either.

EF Slick gets my vote for all around fun. Not too light, not too heavy, just right. And the roll.......

Find the one you like the looks of the most and order it. PAU, Extreme Flight, Pilot, AJ Aircraft, Skywing (and probably a few others) make excellent airframes. The new carbon laminate construction on the EF Extra, Laser and Slick, the Pilot Extra and Laser, and the Skywing Extra, Slick and Laser is really amazing.

All the new 120 airframes fly similar and are great planes. For me, I’d pick the AJ Aircraft Slick, the Pilot Laser or the Extreme Flight Extra.

I have the often forgotten PAU Viper with GP123 flies great. I am building the PAU Edge 540T with DA 120cc and the PAU 43% Edge 540T with DA 170cc.
All the major brands are good, it may come down to pick the colors you like.

I have a PAU Viper as well, i have a DLE111 in it and it flies very well, will do all the 3D you can throw at it and it will also IMAC really good. Best thing about it is that its very forgiving when flying low and slow.
Also, recently built the new PAU Extra 300LX, I have a GP123 in it and this thing does extremely well at everything you can throw at it and i really like the new red color scheme.
I have several other planes from most other mayor manufacturers and they all perform really good and i love them all. Right mow i enjoy flying the PAU Extra 300LX the best.

A PAU 300LX or Jtec Extra 300 in kit form . Love the flying characteristics of PAU but Al from JTEC makes a great plane .

Well, I gotta vote for the EF 110 Yak. I'll admit it's the *only* 120 plane I've got, but I like it!

I talked to the guys at extreme flight today and they were really high on the new laser, they said it was a mix between the extra 330 and the edge. I just cant get over the ugly schemes. Just my opinion.
