Default Airframes for Xicoy X45

I have an X45 and am trying to decide on a model. What is everyone else using theirs for (non-foamies)?

Suitable models that I am aware of are:

Sebart Mini Avanti, MB339, Hawk and L39.
CARF Rebel Hot.
T-One Micro T1.
Phoenix Preceptor.

Harlock Vipers are a good choice as well that’s what I’m flying mine in.

On the PAF side there is also the Sting.

And I forgot the Mini Xcalibur as well.

Mine is in the Sebart Mini Avanti. I have wren super sport in a Paf Sting Evo, I would think the x45 would not be enough for the Sting Evo

The Sting is smaller than the Sting EVO.

The Phoenix offerings, Preceptor as suggested, Proctor, Gripen. Then the Blackhorse Thunderbird (t-33), L39, Viperjet (90mm).

The Airworld Skyrunner if you want to do 250mph+ plus lots of their other offerings could be x45 powered.

I think the BVM Electra could be ideal but it is very expensive and the turbine version doesn’t appear to be produced any more (although a conversion would probably be quite easy).

If still available the Mick Reeves English Electric Lightning kit with two X45's might be a show stopper.......

Pity you don't see more of them flying, ideal size. I suppose the perceived variable/poor quality of the kits doesn't help. (No disrespect to Mick and Jim, I think they do an excellent job).
people expect too much though I reckon. They are great kits for the price.

Anyone have any experience with Fan Jets USA, they have thirteen 90 MM Jet Kits by RBC, that's right balsa kits, CA, sandpaper and covering required
Some may be a tad on the small side for the X45 though.

Rich, they are very good to deal with. I have bought Kits and other products over the years. Matt is great to talk with.
