Help!
Recommendations for a pylon

Can anyone recommend a good lower-end pylon plane? I'm looking at the Rifle 1M or maybe a Sunracer V3? Looking to fly on 3s at 120-140mph or so with a direct drive inrunner or outrunner. I like the VooDoo, but it's a bit small on the wingspan. It's 30" I believe. Would like at lest 34". Thanks!

Get a used Avionik or similar F5D plane. They fly great on lower power setups and when you're ready for more...

Not a bona fide pylon plane but the Hobbyking Reverb is a great value and will hit those speeds easily.

I like that Reverb a lot!!! Might just be my next plane. I just bought a new Rifle 1M. It was a great deal ($127/ shipped). Couldn't pass it up.

I would recommend the Reverb. Its an easy airframe to work with, large fuse and large nose for larger motors. And the canopy makes everything easier

I have a reverb w/ HET 2W20, 5.25x5.25, 3sLiPo. SCREAMS! and for pretty cheap too. Quite a few flights on, very hard to beat the value in this setup, which can surely go 150mph.
