Rog the "old" one is .40 size but it's no longer in production. You can still buy the kit if you look.

There is also the "F-5" .40 size from (i think) 2 different makers

Good luck,
Vasek

Rog, I have two F-20s and two Patriot kits along with a Combat models F-16. Shoot I even have an old GP F-15 in here.
I wouldn't go with a normal .40 if that is all you have for any of these. In fact all my F-20s have had decent .45 or .46s in them. Whatcha got planned?

All are drug around by a prop. What are the engines you have. If you have a .46LA you need to re-think things a bit. Have you flown any propjets? I would be happy to bring one to our next meeting and give you some stick time if you want. The Kangke F-20 is a pretty good flying plane for the money and effort to get into the air. I have had several of them. The one I currently fly has a .46FX, kinda tame compared to the MVVS engines I normally run. My new Magnum will either get one of the MVVS units, SJ.50, or a TT.46.

Juno R/C has a wonderful F-20 kit. Good .40-.46 power and it performs nicely. Suitable for retracts should you prefer.
Flys great.
