Make up a detailed list of all the planes you find boring, and then make up a list of all the planes you find appealing and really like. Include links to them so we can see them.

We'll tell you which plane it will work with on your list.

If you flew it on a Stryker, the type of plane it will go on is going to be somewhat limited to similar planes or wings, unless you are willing to drop it in a gear box. But you didn't mention the kv rating, so it's kind of hard to recommend something perfect.

Maybe a Maxi Swift, the Multiplex Funjet, this recently reviewed SR-71 profile jet, or something like this . Just some thoughts, kind of a tough question to answer with such little info other than a brand and line of motor. But as I said, without a gear box you'll be limited to something built for speed, like the Stryker, and you may find just as boring.

All he has to do is look on the label of the motor. It's either a 2000 kV or a 2700 kV.

Actually they have two, a 2000kv and a 2700kv. Kind of similar, but enough difference it could definitely impact the type of model they could go in efficiently.

Edit: looks like NoFlyZone is faster on the fingers than me!

I think its more import that the plane can both take off and land than the KV rating.

thanks for the replys, I bought a fun jet, Im going install landing gear

I know it will create drag but it will be good to practice on since its foam, I have a Multiplex Twister on 6s that hauls crazy speed, I know the fun jet can be made even faster but since its smaller in size I think it will look if not be as fast the same due to the scale in size. The motor is 2700kv 28mm about 400watts

I don't know if it's too big or not for that motor, but a 6x4 or 6x5.5, should make that Funjet haul the mail no matter what size it appears!

Good choice, I don't think you'll be disappointed!
