I believe Shaun is on vacation, did you call Charles directly and ask?

Its still on the website and thus I believe available.

Yup! It's still available again (it was unobtainable for several months) A friend and I each received ours last Friday, and they look really good. I'll put a Superbee in mine, his will use a Wren 70 or a JJ1200in his. Looking forward to my first "hotrod" jet.

I was thinking of using a EvoJet 90 in it, will it fit without any mods?From what I see it is about the same size as the Wren SSwith some more thrust. Also, what type of landing gear work best with this jet?I will probably be placing a order for one next week, sleek looking jet, the tail reminds me of a F-14. <input type="hidden" id="gwProxy" /><input type="hidden" onclick="jsCall();" id="jsProxy" />

Mine does 205 mph with a Wren 44 . Excellent combo ! The Yellow gear is a good value at about $140 for the retracts . I have Robart struts on mine .

Hi,

The Yellow gear are very good, and a no-mod, drop-in fit. They can be ordered with either wire or bored out for Robart struts. I've got struts on all three gear on mine.

An EVO 90 would put you in the 280mph range. WAY TOO FAST for this airframe. Testing was done to 220mph, at which point it was deemed O.K.. If you dialed the turbine down to 12-14 lbs you would be fine, even with the extra weight of the bigger turbine.

Hi,

I would never go bigger than a P-60 on this bird.

Hi,

I've got struts on all three gear on mine.
This is good, as struts on only two would surely end up badly

The Stingray is a rocket ship for sure...just ask Mr. Matt. Hey where has Mr. Matt been anyway?

Tryin to stay part of that 80% that still have full time jobs!

Hope to see you guys at CA Jets but I have not been able to get out to fly on a weekend in maybe 2 months.

Re: Stingray, thirsty motor options will not have much fuel, it is hard to drain all of those flat tanks with only a UAT as a header.

I ran through 2 sets of Yellow retracts (maybe 400-500 flights) , they are very nice but I ended up swapping out to Robart 535s. I use BVM struts, wheels and brakes, and gear doors.

I think these things look faster than they are, or maybe mine is slow, it rarely got above 200 in my experience (when clocked)

Like I said the higher thrust turbines will work (and be faster) but you might only get 4 minute flights. A guy at my field had a P-80 on one so they can be balanced and flown.

In any case it is fast and hard to see, so Eat your carrots!
