Out of the box & no mods .. Fly from most terrain... Minimal maintenance... Stinger 90 from Freewing no question...

Yup deffintly stinger 90. All the components are of high quality and sturdy, not to mention the best, dent resistant stiff epo foam I've seen out of all the freewing stuff. Plus its fast and fun and has the toughest landing gear

Another vote for the Stinger 90.
By far the best stock 90mm I've seen.

Yes in mph.
Best rtf edf is stinger90.
Fastest rtf edf is cobra90 though fast by aprox 10 mph only ... but still get the stinger90. Much better quality.

EDF's are inefficient. They aren't for setting speed records, they are more for the "wee it's a jet" thing than the speed thing.

If you want to go really fast in an EDF it requires serious $$.

"Breaking 100" is pretty much what all the bigger PnP foam edf's aim for out the box. If you want to go faster you will have to upgrade.

Modified Cobra

You can still get the Cobra from www.Bananahobby.com

Stock 8s straight and level, it will hit 100MPH.

I replaced all flight servos, re-hinged the flight controls, and strengthened the LG mounts. I put in a Jepe Jets Stormfan90 with a Castle 120A HV esc. Running 12s 4000mah Turnigh 40C blue packs. I've cleaned / modified the airflow coming in. I added a thrust tube. AUW is 10 lbs. I'm using Spektrum pitot tube telemetry (on the top of the vertical fin).

With the mods, straight and level is 137 MPH. Normal dives, it'll hit 150, but this particular day I must have gotten all out of her that she could give, and my telemetry measured 166MPH!

Over 150MPH, I can feel the wings warp and the plane will want to roll. If I were to do it all over, I would glass the entire plane to stiffen it up.
