My first real EDF-Advice please

Hello Im looking for some expert advice for my first real EDF jet. I am 14 years old. And I have been flying for 2 years. I have gained a lot of experience in that time with many planes including 3D planes, multiple warbirds, and my favorite parkzone stryker (I can handle the speed of the stryker no problem now.) A while back I got a cheap hobbyking f9f panther EDF and I love it, so Im looking to go bigger/faster. I have about a 300-500$ buget. I prefer American warbird jets and I love the looks of the F15. I have looked at the habu and just not a fan of how it looks. I am flying of a grass run way so that is a big factor. Id love to be able to fly off the grass, but hand-launch/belly-land would be OK too. My dad will help me with building but Id prefer something fairly simple to pull together. Anyone have any good recommendations for me? Thanks!

Sounds like you are looking at foam jets.

Lot of good ones out there and build/mod/review threads have been done on almost every one produced.

Take a look here:

The F9F Panther cannot be beat. See my blog: She's Tore Up Plenty, but She'll Fly True

Why my cheapest, most beat up plane is the most fun to fly
