Ok! Who has one and how much.

Opps! Just went and looked at Sparks and for that price I can do 3 Habu 32s at 160mph or better. It is a beutiful plane but I think over the top for me.

Just my opinion dont get mad

Coolgg you can do that with a dynam me 262 foamy on CS10s with 5s. Mine radared at 103mph with spent batteries. It did 115mph fresh.

I would love to find a composite 70mm me 262 that would get close to 150mph.

you're request in not one that will be easily met.. 150mph is a hard niche to find..
my sapac f16 will do 150mph, but its a foamie handlauncher.
the stock habu will only do about 125 stock..add up all the requirements to make a good 150mph habu and you are well into it for 1000$

what you are looking for is a mid range 90mm jet wilth a good powerplant and a slick airframe..not to many of those out there for sale...good luck if ya find one, but more than likely you will have to build something..

the route i took was to buy a used airframe and mod it..i bought a y/a stingray

stingray built, w/servos/eflite 120 retracts 550$
custom fan/motor combo from knife liddle for 250$
125 amp hv esc 100$

i am into this jet for less than 1000$ and it will do 165mph straight and level on 12s, it can handle 14s but i havent run her up yet on it.

your best bet might be to go to your local feild or a jet rally and pick something up there

Is that on stock motor and stock ESC?

Whats cs10s with 5s? I'm guessing you mean to say two 5-cell batteries in series for total 10-cell, but whats 'cs'?

I agree kremecheze and that is what I was looking for. Something around the 1k range. I'm just at the point where I'm sick and tired of building

So the pastor is looking to go faster, eh?
That Habu 32 that stoneenforcer is selling would get you there. Probably a super sniper 90mm (3DTRYER has one listed w/o a power system: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1741236) would do the trick too. I have a TJ90 for sale here (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1737218) that would go like a rocket on 10s in one of those Super Sniper airframes.

I have a Sapac L-39 that I'm planning on relisting in a week or two. I received a deposit for it from a buyer over the summer, but he lost his job , so it's going back up. My ad here has all the info: http://www.bayrc.com/boards/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=9972
Here's the basics:
- 70mm Hoffman Beast factory balanced motor/fan setup
- Castle Creations Phoenix 125A ESC in like new condition
- Hitec HS-65 servos all around
- MAP (mains) & SpringAir 602 (nose) retracts with Dubro 1.75" tires
- Dimension Engineering SportBEC

Josh

Edit: Oops! Just saw that 3D responded - that would be the airframe I mentioned above.
And a big +1 to what kremecheze wrote. Used and not abused is so the way to go...

"I would love to find a composite 70mm me 262 that would get close to 150mph".

Check out KA models and their composite 262 or the HET 262.
