If you're interested in the Rifle, but are apprehensive about flying it because of the speed, here's a 'starter' setup that performs well: Try the Ammo 24-33-2500 motor and the 1300mAh battery. Get yourself a few APC 4.5 x 4.1 and 4.7 x 4.25 propellers. The smaller battery will slightly lighten the plane making it easier to launch and land. The 'mild' motor/prop combo will provide speeds near 90mph, but not be so 'stupid' fast for someone who is interested in the Rifle, but unsure of their skills/reflexes. Once you get the plane dialed in, get your timing down and become addicted to the speed, then switch to the hotter setup.

For beginners or the uninitiated, try to keep it light - don't use oversize batteries. With suitable gear the plane should come in around 17 - 18 oz.
