The more I go to the field the more Im sick of seeing the same type of plane. I wanna go different for my next purchase. Anyone use a geebee for a hotrod?

you definitely don't see a lot of geebees at our field. hundreds of extras, sukois and edges though.

Exactly. I rarely even see a nice warbird.

I had a 40 sized kyosho Geebee Z with O.S. .91FX (two stroke) that was a neat change of pace, but I wouldn't call it a speedster.

Probably cracked 100 mph, but probably not much more, lots of drag on those planes.
