Default Need new plane for Rossi 53, suggestions please

Hi Guys,

Well, the Sky Raider is no more After many high speed runs, the firewall decided to part company with the plane [:@]
The Raider was quick but I would really like something a lot faster. I would like to put the Rossi 53 on something else. Anyone running a Rossi 53? I am open for suggestions.

Thanks and Merry Christmas,

Rick

Have you read the Patriot at 170 m.p.h. thread yet?
Problem might be finding a kit though...

It is a no-brainer. Patriot with either retracts or no landing gear.

A Patriot for sure!

Does anyone know why GP they stopped producing the .40 plane (for the second time)?

I think the Patriot is only one of many choices for this engine. I suspect it would work well on a Magnum, Delta or Q-500 also. Specs and flight reports suggest that with a tuned exhaust it has similar power to a Jett 50 while turning more prop at less RPM.
