Can you describe a little about the experience you have. Also any size preferences that you may have. These would really help us help you

Not qite the size you are looking for but fast as all heck with the right engine/prop. I do not have one but flew one with an OS91FX on it on a tuned pipe and it was fast.

GP Minnow

I know you said ARF but GP makes the Patriot in a kit that is also very fast with retracts. Here is a video of one. We clocked it that day at 128 mph. I do not know the specs but it screams

If I think of any more I'll post them for you

How about a Hanger 9 P-51 60 size Mustang. Put a Sato 100 or 120 in it and it will scoot. Looks fantastic if assembled corectly.

Hi John,

You left out some words. It should read;- Speed costs money. How fast do you want to go?

You mentioned a multi engine. A twinstar is multi engine ARF and is pretty fast. It doesnt have retracts but maybe with a few mods it could have.

I think that was a pretty popular mod the first time they produced it.

Hi Ed,

You're right. I left out the money part.

koolhand11, if you want info on moderate just-for-fun-and-sport speed, check out the Extreme Speed forum here on RCU. If you want to know about REAL speed, check out the Pylon forums.
