Like cabanestrut2002 said it depends on what type you want to go with. Delta wing or regular type aircraft.

Here is the Lanier Predator 500 ARF. Pretty much any kind of plane of this style will haul around plenty fast.

This plane will fly with a .32 to .46 size engine and will be plenty fast compared to regular type sport planes.

As for Delta you have the Whiplash Extreme which is and ARF and also made of composite materials. The speeds are crazy this plane can reach. Also the Whiplash is very durable as many on here have mentioned.

Or you have the Diamond Dust that is also a Delta wing setup that will fly on a .25 and to a .46 size engine. The speeds are very fast and a lot of fun. Not as durable

Only thing bout the Dust is is a Kit . The Kit comes with very few pieces of wood and builds like a Kite. Very fast Assembly if you want to spend a 2 nites building. In some cases a few hours.

Don't forget the Magnum ARF for $120 plane only or $315 for 50size motor, plane, header and tuned pipe and shipping. Builds as fast as it flies. Ordered on Mon. got on a Friday at 5:30pm and flew at 6:00pm Sat. Still breaking-in engine a little more, have changed to an APC 8x10 prop now starting to turn it loose. Haven't got to radar it yet, would say right at 170mph. Going to start leaning engine out now
