Default looking for an airplane!!!

I am looking for an airplane that is an ARF and that can have a DA100 in it. Or I can also go a DA150. I've been thinking of the edge 540-T from lanier rc but I cannot seem to find it in ARF.
Or if you guys have better airplane suggestions.

I can afford a DA150.
An airplane that costs around 1500$ canadian that is. Approx. 1200$ americain.
And the radio system doesn't matter the price I"m just going to take what is needed for it.
Just a note I won't take the Hanger 9 Ultimate.

Thanks for any help

Have a look at the Wild Hare Extra. It will use a DA 100 nicely, and is not overly expensive. Flight reports have been quite good on it, quality is good, and customer service is great. There's even a support forum for them on this board.

If he's affording a DA150 I assume he wants a 40%.
Maybe check otu Columbo Anderson, AeroWorks, etc

Man this is a loaded question, but IMO if you dont know whats out there as for models, are you sure you are ready to operate safely a 35% too 40% airplane?

No pun intended but typicaly questions like this come from people that are new too the hobby, or people that just want opinions from everyone?

I say GO Composite-Arf....hehehe

How about Dave Patricks new(er) 40% Edge 540T (about $1500)? Worth a look. Good luck!

I've flown a buddy's DP 40% Edge. A very good flying plane with a 3W-140 TOC and JMB cans.
Ask Dave for the Canuck discount.....

No I can't afford an airplane with a DA150. I've seen how expensive the servos are and that just changed my mind.

I will go with a DA100 airplane. I know there is the extra 2.6m but it's 1420 euro which equal to 2200 canadian. WAY too much for me. If you guys know where I can find an airplane that's no more than 1300$ americain pleaze let me know.

Thanks you all in advance

Okay, no we have the price range narrowed down som.

I think you would be very happy indeed with either the 35% Wild Hare Extra 300 or the new Wild Hare Extra 260. All the Wild Hare planes are of good to exceptonal quality and fly extremely well. They may not be quite as light a some of the others, but the quality is high and they don't fall apart. The 100cc engine would work very well, and still leave you with cash for the radio gear after the engine and plane purchases were made.

I think Diablo was giving you a bit of a hard time

GO to www.Composite-Arf.com and pick English and USA, then go to the 2.6 Yak, they start at 1150 US and go up from there.
