Yeh thankyou! I have a couple habus that I've beat to death, more into my 3d birds planes/helis... but still want to build a little better quality jet over the cold winter... what would you recommend for a blazing fast setup in either a 70 or 90mm HET jet? any recommendations pertaining to getting a better deal via the sale would be great! I'll be doing some of my own research in the meantime lol.

FYI Fan Jets USA has close-out prices on HET stuff for nearly the same price and ships from the states.
Don't know how the rates are though.

Lol. I somehow managed to refrain from ordering it, I was just checking shipping. My hand was shaking, but I managed to close the window first...

I built the F18 70mm for a fellow club member and was not overly impressed. Probably decent for the money.

Wish Fan-Jets had the Sniper XL in stock

What issues were there for the F18? I know that the room for components was a pain but other than that was there other issues?

No easy way (without great effort) to have landing gear.
The taileron servos + rods are jammed next to the thrust tube. I doubt maintenance will be simple.
No ailerons nor rudder - this is a balsa version of a Phase 3 F16 IMO. Not a bad thing tho.
My top/rear hatch did not fit well.

The ARF I had missed hardware - so I built my own taileron rod setup and bungee hook. There's a good amount of space in the nose and the build is fairly light (won't survive a even a mild crash - much like the Phase 3).
