Best Park Flyer EDF

What do you guys think the best all around flying jet for a small park size field is? My field is about 100x100 yards or so. Maybe a hair bigger. Do any of the jets on the market work in that tight a space? I can't fly some 130mph rocket in that tight a space...

Currently I fly an F-18 mid mount pusher with an 8043 prop cut to 7" on a Suppomodel B2208 17 1100kv motor on 3 cells. Its fairly slow for a jet... I wouldn't mind it being faster, but it can't be a real rocket.

Also, I prefer a belly flopper since its a grass field.

Thanks for any inputs.
James

Phase 3 F-16. Freewing (HL) F-86 and/or MiG-15. Any of the JPower 50mm jets.

Look in the foamy EDF forum. Lots of info for you.

i too was going to say either the jpower 50mm or venom 50mm (are these the same jets?) jets.
a stock phase 3 f16 would work ok for that space, but anything faster then stock would be too much i think.

You guys beat me to it...the 50mm J-Powers. Great for flying in a small park (if your thumbs are up to it).

Just don't go talking to anyone named Don.

Aren't those 50mm jets SUPER fast? They look like they have next to no wing area, and having such a small fan, they are all pitch speed with no torque. So dont they need to fly like a bandit to stay in the air?

I need to find a bigger field.... I really want that hobbylobby F18! Looks sweet! or a tamjet F18..... What? Its only a little out of my league....

So something like this http://www.bananahobby.com/2041.html

Are the J Power planes the same as these bananahobby ones? How are the electronics? Are they throw away parts? Or will they actually work?

I think Don can also supply a sissy combo that will equal the stock stuff yet outlive the airframe which I doubt the stock stuff will do

The stock stuff works ok if you balance the fan and don't run it on 4s. Otherwise, they're pretty quick stock...surprisingly so
