Default What prop jet next?

I recently finished my patriot xl and I love it-flies nice powered by a 91fx-would like to get another prop jet-which one would you get-the patriot built nice and I had no real problems in building it or flying it-I remember years ago I had a friend who owned a F-20 tigershark I believe-it was a real screamer and if I remember correctly it was alot faster than this patriot I just finished and maybe a little smaller-I don't know the manufacture and if it was even a good airplane but it seem extremely fast-I need a suggestion on what to get next-thanks

Build another Patriot. While you were building this one , I am sure you may have found things you'd like to change like engine, gear ,covering and the whole thing.

Build the smaller Patriot and put a Jett-50 in it---- That'll get the blood pumpin'!

The F-20 was probably the Direct Connection kit which is basically the Kangke F-20 today--- Same deal as the smaller Patriot, FAST with the right set-up!

If you want to build....

The Juno F-18 is a revival of the old Direct Connection F-18. Excellent plane. Same 60-90 size as the patriot XL
http://www.junorc.com
He also has the DC F-20 kit in the works... 40-50 size .... not sure if its available yet.

AK-models.com has the Mig 29 and Su-27 . Lots of info in threads here.

Morris has a kit version of their T-45 Tomahawk. Nice plane. 40-50 size.

Kangke and Sportsman Aviation F-20s are ok for ARFs

Just a few suggestions.
Bob

Looks like the F20 is available. No picture, but I assume it is the old DC F-20, which I have. Never hurts to build another one, eh?
