Default Patriot VS ??????? For Speed and Handling.

What plane would you say is the closest to the Speed and Handling of the Pat. Not into DD's and stuff.Not into wings. Got two Shrikes.Just want something fast with a fuse..Something that looks good.The Dominator and Predator may be fast but looking for a more streamlined fuse.Not a box shape..
Any help here
Thanx..Walt

Somewhere round $100

Default $100?

Well dunno the prices but look for:

Direct Connection F-20
Cermark makes 60 sized F-16 and F-20's
Sig made a Cougar, Cobra, and King Cobra that seemed fast-

Default Fast

I have a Direct Connection Tsunami with a 46FX and Performance Specialties pipe. It hauls butt!!! I am usually the fastest guy at the field, including the guy who has the Patriot. My buddy has the Sig King Kobra with a 60 and the PS pipe. Very fast also. I'd say the Kobra is the better flying and handling of the two.

Tsunami was a a Direct Connections kit. Light weight based on a sailplane and employing NACA airfoil. Looks like an ultra sport, I had one and it lasted one flight. I had a jett 50 on mine and it was a rocket! Mark and I fly together at the field. He has a tsunami and as explained earlier in his post, the King Kobra is a much stable aircraft reminiscent of a pattern plane. You can't get a Tsunami anymore it's to bad because IMHO DC kits were just about all great in their flight behaviors. Take the F-20 for an example, a great example of a well-designed kit with after mentioned airfoil. Actually all of DC kits were designed on computers employing sophisticated airfoils
