Depends what sort of plane u want? landing gear, delta, prop jet (scale or not). GIve us some details. If u just want to go fast though buy a whiplash or magnum.

I would say get a patriot and put retracts in it. They can do about 110mph 120mph on the 46fx. You could also get the lanier F4. It's a bit slower but it's an arf so it dont take 2 months 2 build. I have the F4 and I'm waiting on a set of retracts to come in because I'm modifying it to take them. Mine was clocked on radar at about 95mph gear down and the bearings where shot. I got new bearings have retuned the pipe and say she now does 10-15 mph more. With the retracts I'm hoping to gain another 10 mph.

Is there anything in ARF form?
I do not have the time to build a kit!
I looked at the F4 but I don't want it.

Anythin else?

Default Patriot-

IS your best bet... (find one built already-) don't think you can go 120MPH with a 46FX but...

Direct Connection makes an F-20 if you can find one-

Quickee 500's are a fast option also- Lanier Predator is an ARF..

Sonic 500 arf would be nice, so would the lanier predador 500, lastly the newest q500 on the block would be the Viper 500 available through Tower hobbies. It is suppose to be availiable some time in September, I saw it in the tower hobbies catalog I received yesterday.

These planes fly great on any sport .46, in the 120 mph range with the right prop.
