I don't think the F-20 has retracts. Also it's only .40 size.

Patriot XL setup well with a SJ-90L will get up around 125-135 mph. Sometimes can push 140 depending on location/conditions.

With a 90LX it can push a bit faster (140-145 ish)

No idea on the Phoenix F-20 _ I have only seen one fly, and it was stock with an OS 50 up front.

Last I remember, Cyclic Hardover was going to install a ST90 in the nose of the one he was building.

http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/fb.asp?m=5181298

If the ST90 fits, the Jett 90 will fit.

No idea if the plane is structurally up to the task..... remains to be seen.

I had a Phoenix F-20, Jett 50 & pipe, fixed gear, flaperons...

looked quick but not extremely fast, 120ish, My Magnum-Jett 50 blew past it.

I put hitec HS-225 servos in the tail and 4-40 straight running push rods.

F-20 Stock gear mounts are weak.

sold the plane to a friend who is putting spring-airs into it.
