Default Help finding formula 1 sizes

hey guys....I got bit hard with the formula 1 type aircraft. And i noticed you either have big or small. Yopu have your smaller ones like the Great planes lil' toni , Kyosho's new little Reno racer , and a couple other's that all range from 50"-65" range in wingspan. then there is the larger ones 9which i really love) that run like the GT-80's , like the Miss ashley's and GR-7's.


Is there anybody who makes a size between like an 80"-100" wingspan F1 racer? This is a hard type of airplane to look up info on. Most sites give you details about the races and results , but actuall listing of who actually makes them is minimal.

any help here would be great.

Thanks Cyclic Hardover !! This is what i was looking for. Just curious about what you might know about any of the prices? I visited the USRAINFO site and checked out a few of the prices for the actuall F1 planes. They seem to be around $1500.00 for a kit. Any idea what the 20% at Starr racing is going to cost? I'm looking at trying to find something that would fit in the range of like an O.S. 160 - to a 40cc gasser of some type. I'm curious to find out if anyone makes these F1 type planes in these sizes? that 20% might be what i'm looking for i hope. Thanks for the info!!

With those planes, your going to be into minimum several thousand with the plane,paint, engine, high dollar servo's landing gear(retracts). I went another direction and took a World Models GS P-51 Miss America and bashed it into a modified P-51. I renamed it Mss USA. Decent servos and a BGX 3500 with clipped wings. Now its no reno racer but it's fast

Check out Wendell Hostetler's 42% Nemesis:

It is a bit on the big side of your range, but pretty close and has the looks you are after.

Big difference is you could buy ALL of the 60" size ARF F1 airplanes for less money than one of the 42% scale models.
