Thats an extremely vague question... Each different model will have different speeds and flying characteristics at 1/2 throttle...
Its not so much that you cant throttle back and slow the F-22 down, but in the hands of a low-time pilot, especially a rookie to EDF's, you could be in way over your head.
If you're really interested in starting out on EDF's, I have a suggestion!
You could go ahead and buy one (or two) fans and motors that the RBC F-22 kit calls for, get yourself a Stryker airframe (F-27 made by Parkzone) for about $19.99 at your LHS, and learn to fly on that first.
This way, you'll have the gear you need for your F-22 and you'll gain VALUABLE experience in flying EDF's on the Stryker.
You gotta take things one step at a time man. If you're new, and have relatively low-time on R/C aircraft the RBC F-22 is going to be more than a handful and will probably end up.... *re-kitted* on the maiden...
But good luck w/ whatever you decide to do.
