High speed versus low speed, obviously. Add in the glide and your gonna get you're answer.

I've only ever thrown a Thunderbird out of the 3. Obviously better than the other 2.

"Forward fade" is like "Climate change" : something someone made up on a lark to make their point.

I just remember those proto star champ thunderbirds being very overstable - firebird like finish. Then my 4th run C-PD being super glide-y.

Now I throw 3rd run C-PDs (which are like 75% firebird in nature), and have tried out the production run of champ thunderbirds ended up being glidey like the 4th run C-PD.

its confusing.

I've never thrown a Thunderbird so obviously the PD is better.
