O'Day DS or Flying Scot?

Thanks everyone again for ALL input up to now, I really appreciate. Keep it coming! It's hard to argue someone's personal experience, so I value it all.

Being kinda lazy, I've gotten pretty good at not flipping even Butterfly's and Sunfishes, being quick to dump main or head up or both, so unless a larger dink is REALLY unstable, I think I can keep her on her bottom. Don't want to flip when we're out for a leisurely sail with kids or non-sailors. I typically also won't go out if winds are more than 12-15 knots. The DS has my eye, and the Rhodes 19 looks interesting but doesn't appear much larger than these others in the cockpit. Budget would be <$3000. I've found FS and DS at or under this, looks like Rhodes run a bit more.

Gonna go out in a Sonar soon, which sounds awesome, but I think they're $5-10k used.
