Default Lanier F-86 Sabre ARF - fast?

I'm looking for a prop jet that's <110 mph. Will the Lanier F-86 ARF do it or should I look somewhere else?

I'm looking toward D/F, but not sure I'm ready for it... is the prop and D/F about the same?

Thx in advance.

Default Hmm

If I remember rithmatic alright- that is less than 110MPH?

I have not seen the Sabre fly- But I would think the Lanier F-4 would be quicker since it has cleaner lines...

This all comes down to the powerplant you use- From a Mecoa 46 to a Jett 50, your mileage may vary---

The propjet will help get you ready for a Ducted Fan but they do handle differently. The DF needs ALOT of room to get off and it takes longer to go from say, slow- fast!

I have only flown one DF it was a TGA F-15 and it was smooth to fly, and landed easier than my Lanier F-4... I would say if you can handle a fast pattern plane or a HEAVY warbird you would be okay...

Dunno if this helps- I want to get one of those Sabres to try

The two prop jets you have in your attached image-what kind are those?

I've been flying for about 3-4 months now and have a good handle on my UltraStick. It has an OS .50 SX with 10x6 or 11x7. It's kind of slow for me now and I would call myself a speed demon.

I'm not sure I'm so enthused about the F-4's. I kind of like the jets and am willing to sit for a proped jet.

So, two questions:
1. What kind of ARF Jet would you recommend?
2. Is an OS .50 SX good enough or would you recommend the ones you mentioned earlier. The OS .50 has 1.8hp and seems to be much stronger than the Evolution .40 (P.O.S. provided with my first trainer)

Thx, JS

Default well

On the left is a Patriot, and the right is a Lanier F-4...

3-4 months? These planes fly differently than an ultrastick...

You mean SETTLE for a prop-jet? If you are gonna go from an ultrastick to a ducted fan you are a better man than I-

Do a search for "propjet" or "Patriot" etc..

This has been covered at length- The OS-50 will fly the Patriot and F-4 very well-

Good luck!
