Default Magnum is to small

Hello Fellows

I bought a .46 .76 and a 120 jett engine, and I want to find a fast plane to put them in , Well everybody talks a lot about the magnum plane, but to me its just to small, is there another size of that plane, if not are there any other speed planes that would be alittle bit bigger around 60 to 68 inches maybe more.

Thanks
Randy

not true...
small planes go fast on small engines, big planes go fast on big engines.
the 46 jett will be fine in the Maggers, what you have to do is get a big engine in a small airframe, otherwise your engine wont be able to over come the drag.

think about it Ian... how fast is a cessna.. a slow plane, no bits to make it quick, but it's big. theres a post a few lines down about a large scale racer, 220 easy.

smal planesx go faster
small planes APPEAR to go faster, they cover their own length more times per second than a larger aircraft and so look a lot faster, if you ever see a large (i mean really large) model fly it looks like its going walking pace, same thing lying on a beach in ibiza and watching a low jet fly overhead- you would think you could hobble on one leg faster than its going, its really going about 600 mph
