Default Best and fastest prop jet??

I'm looking for information on what is the best prop jet plane out on the market. I want it to be not only big but very fast..... no kidding right? I have a GP Patriot with a Jett 50 and retracts but I need more. I like the Cermark f-16 with a Jett 90 but, from the youtube videos, it doesn't seem to really punch it. Then I've seen a new Duelist plane in the making that I like that is made for twin 90's......oh now this just may work. http://ne-aero.com/superduelist.aspx So I ask, you of great knowledge, what is that perfect mix of fantasy plane and engine?? And why not make it a nice one with some really cool retracts.

Dualist doesn't quite fit the profile of a prop jet

The Cermark Jets are pretty quick considering how large and draggy they are. Most tend to top out around 120-125 mph. A few have gone faster.

One thing here...... if you are thinking ARF for a speed plane...... your choices are going to be very, very limited.

You will have to build to get anything decent.

Prop jet wise, the Juno F-20 is very quick. I enjoyed that plane a good deal.
If you can find one, the old Royal F-4E is good. GP F-4E is not too bad, but not any faster than the Cermark jets.
GP Patriot XL is not too bad... a few of those have topped out around 130ish.


If you are just looking for sleek, fun, smooth and fast....

Hunt down a good 1985ish vintage pattern aircraft. (Typically under 800sqin wing)
Decent set of retracts
Jett FIRE-90LX engine
11x8 prop

T2A-MkII, Atlanta, Citation, LA-1, Aurora, Atlas (designs with internal RE pipe setup - best speed)

EU-1A, Brushfire (if you want jet-looks, one of these two)

Bridi XLT is a bit larger but is a great flying aircraft, and fairly quick.

Side exhaust options... ("Small" size pattern ships from late 70s to early 80s)
Blue Angle, Curare, Tiporari, Intruder, Patricia, Dirty Birdy, UFO, Deception (can be built RE too), Trouble maker, Phoenix 6-7-8, Dirty Birdy, Compensator (my last compensator was set up as RE with a pipe tunnel canopy), and a host of others.

Many of these are indeed currently available as wood or glass/foam kits. Carolina Custom aircraft is one source, search the classic pattern forum for many others.

Bob, hey thanks for all the info. You've given plenty to research and choose from. I may need to start a collection of these.... something to think about.

UK MAGNUM R and a Dub Jett .60LX

Not the BEST ARF but one great motor.

On the down side, Speed cost money.

Ha, you could try a light sleek Delta as alternative to prop jet plane, That should quench you need for speed with a meaty powerhouse upfront.

I don't know what fast these jets could be or how much the shipping is or if is possible the shipping [sm=bananahead.gif] but it could be just another "option" ( F-18 , A-4 , F-4 , F-5 , MIG-29 , MIG-21 , L-39 and SU-27 ) . The SU-27 looks cool [8D].

Faster than a patriot Jett-50? Follow Bob's advice...there are not many options for a speed prop-jet with L/G.

adding to bob's advice on the 1985ish pattern plane for a speed option, they could easily be painted in jet like colors to achieve what you want. a couple of times a pattern plane of mine was in the primer stage and the idea crossed my mind.
