Default ARF prop jet recommendation

Hi - I'm based in the UK and am looking for a fast ARF prop jet. I don't want to get into F5B or anything similar. Only option at present is the WestonUK MagnumR but I've heard conflicting reports about it's suitability for outright speed and it doesn't glide that well. I really need something a little larger. Phoenix or Kangke F-20 would have been great but delivery from US would be over 100USD from Tower Hobbies. Any advice appreciated. Did I mention that this would be an electric conversion?

Cermark F16 is a great looking and awesome flying projet with a hot 90 size motor. I have the Kangke and Phoenix F20 and they pale in comparison.

Thanks for the recommendation. Cermark F-16 is 270GBP over here. I just don't think it's worth it for that.
