Default FIRST PROP JET QUESTION..WHAT PLANE?

I would like to build a prop-jet and am considering a few models. The G.P. Patriot XL, the Juno F/A-18 or the AK-Models SU-47. I would like to here some opinions on ease of build and flight. Any input in this decision would be great. Oh ya....I want to go fast!!

Thanks, Chris

Any of those you listed are about the same level of effort to build, and they all fly very well.

Sorta comes down to which service you want to model after. The Patriot looks nice in AF colors.... F-18 in Navy colors .... Obviously the SU-27 looks nice in Russian colors.

Also worth considering, the Juno F-20. A bit smaller, straight-forward build. Flys very well.

The smaller Patriot is also a good choice and you can usally pick one up on eBay every week or so.
