Default what to do wiht jett 50 FIRE

Hey guys

Got any airframe suggestions? Obviously something that's gonna be fast it was in a viper 500 which is now dead ... Prefer ARF (don't mind adding fiberglass or what ever else it needs) over a kit build but will consider both.

Im looking to at least match the speed of the viper but would really rather be faster..

If you want speed try a Diamond Dust. They build fast and go like stink.

Standard Diamond Dust.

Warning, they are addicting!
Once you are use to it and totally hooked, you get the clipped wing version with a Jett 50 F.I.R.E. or a YS 45 RE.
Severe symptoms are indicated by daydreaming about high speed rolls or the need to stuff some monster DF, heli, R.I.R.E. engine in one.

Check out www.diamonddustrc.com . You can get some good servo information on the Diamond Dust threads on this forum too.

Good luck!

The diamond dust is a good choice....so is the whiplash if you can find one.

Once you fly your DD for awhile, you may try a mini dust just for kicks!
Mine has a TeeDee .o9 on it....it's either all go, or no go. lol [8D]

For the extra 2$ I think i will go for the 126mg

4.8v or 6v?

I'm thinking 4.8 would be best as to keep wight down...
