There are not a great deal of prop-jets ARF style out there these days.

Top of the ARF heap at the moment is the Cermark F-16. Very nice bird.

Kangke or Sportsman Aviation F-20 tigershark are good choices too. Only thing is they are not set up for retracts.

Morris Hobbies has the T-45. Nice bird, flys well.

The F-4 phantom from Lanier flys well. Again, no retracts, but its a nice plane. (The F-86 I tend to be less complimentary about)

Angle Design may have the T-38 available in the near future.

I have not seen any of the Vmar planes yet. Although the RCU report on the phantom seemed fairly positive.

Also as an alternative,
Keep an eye on the market place here at RCU and other auction sites. Sometimes you can find a well constructed AKM SU-27 or Mig-28 kit, or a ready to fly GP F-4 phantom or DC F-20. Often enough, these 'used' kit planes are better than the ARFs you might otherwise settle for.

Thanks guys great info , been looking at the AKA Su for a while , would love a used on , that is one nice kit and plane .If I cant fine a plane I will build one of those.
As far as VarMar , I know there getting better but for $329 , they is a risk in my book .

I had worked on some designs for a smaller version of the MiG-21, but I then I got distracted with other projects. I have a few of my own prop jets that Ive designed over the years. I'd really like to see what this VMAR MiG is like.

All of your left over stuff will fit great in the F-16. Especially the Jett 90. The plane looks great and is a good value for what you get. The only down side to the f-16 is that it tops out at about 130 mph. Don't get me wrong thats still cooking tacos for a big plane, it's just not the all out screemer that the f-20 can be. The air scoop is just too much drag to go any faster. On the up side it looks very scale and great in the air. You will get a lot of looks on the ground and in the air. I hope this helps. see the thread 'Cermark f-16 build it better, stronger and faster' there is a lot of info about the Cermark F-16 with pics.
