Any of them will keep a smile on your face..... take your pick.

My personal favorite was the Rivets.

The AJ-2 gets my vote!
Is there any reason why you are going to put a .25 in there? .32 is the same size and weight.
If you are going to go fast, might as well do it from the start!

If you do purchase one of these, please do a build thread on it! Take lots of pictures too!

Do you have an AJ-2? I was going to use the .25FX because I have one sitting on the shelf.

Put an ultrathrust or equivelant 1\4 wave pipe and have a blast. I have a .25 on my Kangke racer with an 8-6 apc and it is a great setup.

I dont have one of the matney models, yet!

Since vertical has started his thread on the zoomer, I have almost hit the "buy" button. Thanks for the great thread vertical!
I am shy of the foam core wings. Just not familiar with them. Vertical made it look easy. I have done only two foam core wings since being in the hobby. They were easy though.

I have been looking at the AShley II from Extreme composites, but I cannot get my self to buy one. and they are expensive.

I think I will get the AJ-2 in the larger .40 size and put my Jett .50 in it. That should turn some heads at the field.
