For a 160, I would recommend the classic T One Sport Jet. IMHO, ... It is better built than the Odessey or the Predator and it has a very wide flight envelope. I have seen and flown all three of these models at our field and have helped their pilots troubleshoot issues, etc.

I agree, take a look at the T1, I went from the mini to the T1 and really like the plane.

Iíve built an Odyssey for a friend and would not recommend it if quality is important to you. Paint was horrible, very flimsy old school fiberglass construction, warped rudderÖ I just couldnít recommend one to anybody.

The predator is fine but with a 160 Iíd go with the T1 or the Rebel Classic. The 160 is big for a Rebel Classic, if youíre concerned about it Iíd sell the 160 and pick up a 140 for the Rebel. If you go with the T1 I would recommend staying with the 160. The Rebel flys better than the T1, itís faster, lighter, more aerobatic with the fully symmetrical wing vs the semi of the T1, but still slows down to land as long as you keep it light. I think you would be happy with either though.

The predator flies flying and is decent jet. I know several people who have them and are pleased with them. However, if you want a jet that flies just as well if not better, and is built like a tank then I would go with the T1. I like the Rebel and have one myself. It flies extremely well but is not the strongest build. I tried an Odyssey and was not impressed with the build quality in the slightest.

I built an odyssey this year and flew it on a JC 140.

TopRC is hit and miss on quality control. But my 2023 odyssey kit was great, no issues. I have owned T-One scale jets and they were all crap. Canít comment on the sports jets.

the odyssey is heavy and comes in fast. It can slow down with crow. Otherwise it flew great. I fly off 400ft grass/sand $7k investment in the odyssey. I went with a cmjets fuel/uat tank, electron gear, spektrum servos, metal horns, metal turn buckle links and jet CB 220. The updated Jetcat 140 with brushless pump and v12 controller.

Elite Aerosports BDXs or Viper are also good choices.

another recommendation for any of the jets is getting Electron Landing gear sets.

if you get a odyssey do not buy the toprc landing gear for it.
