Question
Looking For A Very Fast Jet With Landing Gear

Hello,

I am looking for recommendations for a ducted fan jet with landing gear (does not have to be retracts) that also flies over 100mph. I like the L-39 look but and I am open to other recommendations.

Thank you

That is pretty broad.

Do you want composite or foam?
You looking for 60-64mm size fan, 70mm, 90mm?
You want 100 mph on the stock setup or modified one?

Lots of jets out there you need to answer some more questions for us.

Hi,
I guess, the fan size is irrelevant, but I would prefer foam. I own a 2w-25 motor and so I am looking for just the body itself.
I really would like landing gear on it though. I am a little sick of belly landings ;o)

Thanks

Sport Jet 70 from EJF.com

My 550W setup pushed it to 90mph...
That 900W motor will do over 100mph easy!

The L-39 from Sapac with the stock motor should get you there or real close. It even comes with retracts and flaps.
