Default help me about the aircraft pylon race

is there anything that would help or tell me about a pylon race?
I was about to start a pylon race for the race, but I wanted to ask,
and the question is:
aircraft such as what can I use?
what better engine wear and what size?
and I better use what servo?
maybe anyone knows where I can hobby shop to order the plane?

thanks
Romy

JRX,

if you are just looking for something to mess around with, we have been using modified electric Blue Ray pylon racers. Check out [link=http://www.bhrcp.org/Blue_Ray_Pylon_Racer.htm]Black Hawk RC Pilots Blue Ray pylon racing.[/link] The planes are inexpensive and fly great.
