Wow 5 min at WOT is great. So that's on 2650 and not on 2200 like your orginal post? But I'm sure the 2200 would work just as well. I think this will be my next setup with the Radjet...powerup 450 motor, 60a esc and 3s 2200 lipo. 100+mph sounds like a fun combo with the Radjet frame for around the neighborhood flying

The Radjet is going to be limited by the size equipment that can go in it and also it's wing area. This all relates to how fast you can get one to go. The Funjet's have been able to be pushed to 200+ but that's because of the room for large 6s lipos, 100+ amp escs, and large motors. Plus the FJ's have a larger wingarea and made of stronger foam.

Well dang nose down into the dirt..... Totally pilot error I did a nice curve around and it got behind me and that was it. After all the stories here I wasn't expecting much but for the 20 seconds it flew it was really nice! Just glueing the nose back on now hopefully I can try again tomorrow!

I hadn't flown either of mine in a LONG time, due to so many other things to do and fly. And never getting the motor change done on them. But flying one again was great and reminded me of how much fun these are!! I like bigger warbirds and scale jets for their impressive looks, but really the Radjet is as much fun, or MORE, than any other plane!
A really good "just keep it in the car and fly whenever you can" little plane! And it's speed and screaming motor are as impressive (almost) as any larger plane's other reasons to be impressive anyway!

You're right Peter, you can't get a better bang for the buck than something like the Radjet. For around $100 bucks you can have a 100+mph pusher jet. Just add about $50 in motor and esc upgrades!

i agree with you . it all depends on he persons taste . i love the look of warbird and jets ,and have one of each ,i dont really care for them . the warbirds fly too slow , and the jets drain the life out of batteries and cost so much to upgrade them to get decent speeds out of them.so my go to planes are always wings or what i call (or are considered )bank n yank planes . there low cost can be scratch built and if set properly fly like on rails

You ought to try a Skyangel/HK Funfighter if you think warbirds are slow

LOL, that is not a warbird, that is a 'funfighter'!
"Warbirds' fly like they should.... to scale speed (approx). And are more scale too (standoff scale generally).
But the funfighter range are a good/novelty mix of looking like a warbird, but flying like scalded cats!
