It appears the F-86 suffers from lots of drag and poor ducting.
From what I have seen the F-86 has way too big of an exhaust to be any fun on 3s. And that goofy servo cover thing ain't helping either. However there is a guy at my field that added a makeshift thrust tube to it, balance the stock fan and added a 4s battery. That turned it into a really good flier! I used to do mock dogfights with him when I had my Mig-15 with the Himax combo on 4s. I had just a little bit more speed than him but just barely. It can be made to work if you spend just a little time on it...
