Need experienced reviews/advice re: Freewing F-14 vs. F-15. I have my eye on one of these two & each seems to have their pluses & minuses.

Also, although the Phoenix missile was a long range weapon, it. The F15 multitool is a minimalist yet fully capable device ready for a variety of riding disciplines.
