Hi Guys,

Hi
I have no personal experience of extreme speed planes, but if you perform a search for "Jett" you'll find tons of info on an engine brand many speed freaks seem to like

Just engines have a page about Jett with GBP pricing!!!!! So im guessing they can get you one! I know of someone in the UK who ordered one from Jett directly (in USA) for his laser arrow.

BTW a Magnum will get you going faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast with the west 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thx for the replys guys.............

I think i will go with the Weston Uk MagnumR

MagnumR
New! Re-styled to an even sleeker shape, cuts through the air more efficiently.
New laser cut construction adds more strength at no weight penalty. Now covered in metallic yellow Oracover with a carbon effect canopy and highly visible chequered film bottom.


This model is ultra fast (capable of speeds in excess of 200mph) and super stable. With its sleek jet-style appearance the only way to describe the Weston Magnum is simply balisitc! With a lightweight wood and fibreglass fuz, the wing is balsa covered foam with a high speed laminar flow section. Wingspan 875mm, Length 1070mm, Weight 1.75Kg, Radio 4 function, Servos 3 standard,
Engine .40-.50 2 stroke

MagnumR arf artf £99.95 Deal - MagnumR, West .50V1 and Genesis pipe £255.95

Ok ive just looked it up...... looks ok but i fly from a bumpy grass field soo i think the magnum may be better suited plus i dont really have time to build kits at the moment, but thx for the suggestion...........

Will the West .50V1 and Genesis pipe give me the speed im after or should i go for a different engine ? i have a Jen 53 (Just Engines) with a tuned pipe waiting for a home, but i dont think that will be no where near the same power......

Thx

I think the West 50 will give you the power and speed that you want.

I've flown a Magnum with a West 50, and a Magnum with a Jett 50. Hardly any difference in speed at all. Currently flying a MagnumR with the West with an 8x10 prop. Plenty Quick.
