Default What is the slowest flying jet?

Can someone please recommend a jet that can fly really slow and land on a dime. Must be less than 55 lbs ready to fly.

Thanks

Reaction 54, weighs about 20 lbs, police radar measured landing speed of 23 MPH in near calm conditions. In a good breeze I have flown it backwards across the field.

The other option is a VTOL jet, like a Harrier, your landing speed and slowest flying speed will be zero.

Well going huge and XXL would help on construction vs. wing loading. And visual wow effect too but you also wan't to keep it average sized...

I've seen couple of Odyseys and built pair of 1/5 Carf Hawks but C&C Model 1/5 M346 I had seem to land much slower than those. I got less than 40km/h stall speeds flaps down and safe approach was something like 50-55kph. Current Dragon has huge wing and still wouldn't compare. Must be that big LEX or root extension. Greased landing was always slower than 45 because that was the limit of my stall alarm. It was about 12kg dry. Now flown by my friend.

So something light with short tail and big LEX or maybe Delta-wing. I know some deltas like Mig-21 that can fly with AoA they can't land at

The Shockjet is a great option for slow landing less complex jet. I still love mine
