The AK Models Su 27 looks like a nice prop jet for that size engine, Also the f-16 AKM has.
Check out the threads on them.

..........ironic that a scale P-51 will blow the doors off many scale prop jets.

Depends on what your looking for, I always say a "Prop Jet" is a good everyday fast sport plane with some extra Coolness factor.[8D]

Hi Guys,

OK, how are the F20 arf's or are there any nice Talon arfs or kits at all out there. I was thinking about kit bashing a Patriot into a T-38.

Unfortunately there arent many stand off scale prop jet kits out there. AK and Juno are the only ones Im aware of right now.
B-USA and Sig have some sport looking prop jets. Might find something there you could bash as well.
Cheers.

Hi Ed,
AK stuff is great, flies good, nice lines. You can't go wrong. If you REALLY want a T-38 Talon go to the auction site, there is an R/C Kits T-38 up there. I had one years ago, flew good but could not get enough power for it back then with a Webra 61 Speed which was the hottest engine back in the 1970's. Your Jett 90 should be great in there

Random question but can you do nose high landings with most of these prop jets? I'm trying to decide if I want to go with a prop jet or an EDF to train for turbine....

Yes, and actually, you should land them that way...... throttle, nose up...... fly it down with the power.

Done properly, reasonable landing speed, and thing of beauty

P51's were designed to be very streamline planes back in the days of props. Really the main downside for RC speed is that scoop on the bottom. If we don't care about scale I guess we could always leave it off.

AK-Models also has a Mig-29 Fulcrum kit that looks great, too.

An F-16 with the underbelly scraped off would look pretty cool and make for a more legitimate speed model.

This might help, some may be outdated though.

as Bob said, more over if you program in a throttle delay (progressively up to 3 sec) you'll get a feeling for the turbine (response) lag

if you want to consider an ARF instead of a kit, it's hard to beat the Cermark F16. This propjet handles like the Patriot XL and looks better on landing with high alpha position.
