Best pnf edf jet under 150$

I know I've done a lot of these threads but I really need help, so far 1/2 planes that I have bought have not even gone of the ground there so bad.
So I really need an edf jet that will last and will be able to fly fine stock. Oh and It would be nice to know what battery you are using for the plane you recommend also landing gear is a must.

Look at the 64mm 4s Freewing jets that MotionRC carries. The F-22, the F-18, or the Stinger64 all fly well and perform. The price fits your budget as well.

I have the 64mm F-22, I do fly it with upgraded motor and 4s 2650mah.

Vote for the Stinger64 4s version, also get landing gear at motion under spare parts.
I fly mine from a grass runway takes about 100 feet to get airborn, but it works
If you get a scale jet like the f22, is harder to fly, the stinger64 is stable at all speeds
including landing

What planes have failed you?

What size, wingspan and EDF diameter you into?

What packs do you already have?

I'm assuming you have a paved runway.

After that barrage of questions Stinger 64 is great, Vampires a pussycat, Dynam Meteor is great as well but you kind of roll the dice with QC issues, Ive got one and it is a great flying airframe. So you got plenty of options
