How fast and what kind of plane do you like.

Phoenix Strega is a great arf for $99 if you like a P51.

Blessings, Terry

i wouldnt mind a delta, i saw a mach racer really cheap too, speed wise how would that compare to the strega?....they both dont look too bad


ill take as much speed as i can get out of a rossi 45 but at a good price

id pass on the mach racer..... its not bad, but its not real fast and folks tell me its a bit under-built for tossing a lot of engine on it.

Viper (or any decent q-500 design would be good). Fast, straight, cheap, simple, and it has landing gear.

The ARF strega as noted is not bad.

A good ARF delta is hard to find - look up some build/for sale Diamond Dust aircraft or similar.

The Lanier Shrike is fun and fast as well. Might be a few of those still on the market. Caution on the CG when installing a Rossi on it... will tend to come out noseheavy.
