Did you happen to look at the post titled " Sportsman Aviation F-20 Tigershark ARF" that's been at or near the top of this forum all day?

How about this one....... http://www.kangkeusa.com/ the info "Super Kraft’s F20/40 scale ARF prop/jet features high quality balsa construction and is smartly detailed using Ultracote file covering. Like the full size, the F20/40 was designed for raw speed and high speed maneuvers. Yet, this model remains surprisingly easy to handle in the air and to grease on the runway. Included are a scale decal set, a complete hardware set, and an easy to follow instruction manual" I can vouch for this quote.

Bravo,
I second MustangAce's suggestion. Nice ARF, and it flys great.
I do have a question for the speed freak group out there, I'm flying mine with a Max 46FX, at the moment, but would like to strap on a Sport Jett 50. Has anyone tried this kind of horsepower on the Kangke F-20 with it's bolt on stab???? Are there any further mods necessary to run this plane as fast as the Jett will take it???
It takes the Max, with no airframe mods...and no flutter or problems....Any suggestions

Contender,

You should have no trouble moving to the Jett .50

If you have a well assembled and sturdy airframe now that has no issues with the OS, you should not experience any issues with the additional power.

The Jett .50 bolt pattern and propdrive spacing are the same as for the OS.46, so it should pretty much drop in.

btw... I see you are in Holtsville. I am from Huntington originally

Any questions, please feel free to email or PM

Bob
