Depends on what you want.

I know a guy who has a Typhoon with 400 plus flights on it. Original servos save one and he swapped the motor out for an E-Flite 480/910. Great plane/good price. I would place the Acromaster second as it flies better pattern than the Phoon at a larger price tho.
Not a fan of GP planesand have never seen the Ucando fly so no comment.

Hey now,
I've seen all three fly and if your not going with the other option from Airfoilz, then the Typhoon is o.k., it does the job more or less, but I don't personally like it. The U-can-do isn't worth bothering with; for one it's far too floppy, 20 it breaks at the tail even on fairly soft landings. I'venever seen one get a decent flight, and I've seen several show up at the field.
The MPX is a very nice model and of the three the most costly as well.
*If* I was limited to the three I'd go with MPX otherwise I'd buy the Airfoilz model. I was very impressed with their quality and flyability.

I agree with Elfwreck about the U-can-do. Being a glutton for punishment, I've had 2 and neither one lasted long enough to enjoy. Even though they are epp, they tear very easily.

A friend flies the typhoon and it is a nice flyer. I prefer the Multiplex. Just a personal thing. I"ve always had a lot of enjoyment from their products. (I even use their tx - an EVO 9).

Hey now,
You bought two of them?!?!
Dude! and folks say I'm stubborn...
Have to agree with the MPX stuff though. I've never been disatisfied with any of their stuff. I've owned a TwinStar, TwinstarII, Twin Jet, Sonic liner, Micro Jet, Pico jet, and of course my Evo 12. Best radio I ever used.
I wouldn't think twice aboput buying anything made by MPX, well except maybe their bl 480 motors, awful heavy for the output...
