What to get ???
Well, my first foray into hotliners ended with the demise of my Robbe Calibra....
While pulling out of a dive, the wings folded.... I suspect there was some previous damag, since the pullout wasn't that hard.
It was equipped with an outrunner motor from torcman, the TM 350 , on 10 cells running a 14x10 prop, very good power, steep climbs.
Now I am faced with the question of what to buy for a replacement. I am undecided between the HL Jerry, and the Nike or the Adriana from Esprit Models.
Any ideas/recommendation/suggestions ?
And can anyone tell me if my torcman will fit in either of the planes ?
Ext. diameter of the motor is 42 mm.

Depending on how fast, how stable, and how acrobatic you want to be all of these planes are decent. Question is how much money do you want to spend? For your SECOND hotliner the bandit is a pretty good choice...

Nike & Bandit
Thanks for the suggestions, guys.
After some searching around here on the E-Zone, and reading lost of posts about the Bandit, and it's supposed tip-stall tendency, I decided to go with the Nike, also, because it's a little bigger than the Bandit ( easier tpo see )
@soholingo : About the 2-piece wing : Is it a "real" 2 piece wing, with a joiner, and at the field you just plug it together, or does the wing come in 2 halves which have to be glued together, making it a one-piece ?
