Assume that you are referring to the Park Zone F-27 Stryker. It is a belly lander or when you get good with it you can catch it. Be careful when you launch it. Some folks have been hitting their fingers with the prop. It goes plenty fast. One writeup says 50 mph with stock equipment. Not sure if that it in a dive or level flight. It moves plenty fast for most newer fliers. Get a hold of the FMS flight simulator and F-27 model for it. It is a great way to get used to ailerons. Very durable plane but it will break when you hit something hard. Be ready with the glue and tape. Read through the other threads on this plane. Lots of good information there.


Have fun flying and repairing!

How about free. If you can afford that then download the FMS simulator. It works great and it is free.

Once you have the simulator downloaded and working go to the next link and download the F-27 Stryker model.

You won't be disappointed with a Stryker. Even after you get used to its flying, you'll start modifying it to death. lol and one thing that I kind of found, is if/when you crash, and a part on the nose breaks... only lightly tape it... so when it crashes again, it only pops off the broken part, and doesn't cause anything ELSE to break. lol

Wow, tried the free simulator, and hate it[:@]! Oh well, to be expected. Anyway, the Stryker is quite fast, but still capable of slowing down. You should be able handle it with help, or at least previous experience, although I must say that switching to it from AB was awesome! First flight, experienced friend helped in takeoff and landing, second time, I did everything with it. I read that it can get up to 50mph, but i didn't do a low pass to really gauge the speed, but even at altitude it goes much faster than AB.
