Still got a Spacescooter in the hangar.

I stopped flying as soon as I found out I couldn't get any spares anymore.

A brushless cargo comes to mind...

Twinjet Maxi for brushless

The TJ is my all time favorite

Rather than a reissue, how about a larger wingspan, a thinner airfoil, less reflex on the elevons and moulded plastic bulkheads for bolting on brushless motors.

A plane to leave the fun jet ultra in the dust !

Two 500 watt motors and some thing like a 1.2 to 1.4 meter wingspan, nice and visible for big jet syle manoeuvers

funny, just recently I wrote a mail to MPX with a link to our brushless diff thrust Sonic Liner

http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1103869

Got a speedy reply: no, they are not thinking about a re-issue of the Sonic.

bummer, Gabriel and I we'd each buy another one in addition to the one we have.

cheers

well, at least the reflex on the elevons is truly easy to get rid of: Just massage between thumb and index finger and the elevons will be straight. No hot water or hair drier needed, try it with your fingers, I've done it.

of course even larger wingspan and thinner airfoil would be nice - but even the original TJ brings all the goodies of differential thrust (easy to do with brushless) and allows for agility and stunts for which a single engine jet would need (horizontal) vectored thrust...

Well, that's just a bummer they won't reissue the SL. I love mine but it's a bit beat, it was my third plane. I would love to have a new one to upgrade and get flying the way it should.

microjet microjet microjet!

man alive, I still have one left that I just love to fly!

Been flying microjets through the speed 400 days with nicads! they flew great then . . . . now my latest has been equipped with a Dons Wicked Jr 3000 and a 1000 mah 3s 25C lipo it is the most fun air hole driller I have - fast, insane roll rate and very durable . . . did I mention insanely fast too!
Just sitting on the ground awaiting flight it attracts lots of questions and comments . . .ooooos and aaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhs!

I would buy another to replace my old one (lots of dings and dents) and I know for a fact multiplex could have sold at least two of them every time one goes up in the air!

What an awesome little bird!

well, Multiplex does sell the Microjet - in white, without can motor!

but the new Funjet Ultra now looks a lot like the Microjet anyway, just paint a fighter canopy with a waterproof marker and you got a model which will be a bit slower with the same motor but it will be capable of much more than speed and rolls, and if you put more power in it will still be tracking fully stable through the air, and doing narrow stunts and slow flying to boot...

almost forgot to mention that the Funjet Ultra costs more than twice as much as the Microjet foam parts kit :-)

so the Microjet is still attractive

cheers

Brushelss, and maybe even modified for EDF, would certainly make the Sonic Liner a nicer-flying plane.

I bought one when it was first on the market. It has the stock Permax 400/6v motors and standard Günther props, and it flies fine...in fact, too fine. Too easily. After a few flights it's downright boring — and I'm not joking. But it's big, too...looks beautiful.

Crank up the power output and it might be really cool. Otherwise mine just hangs on display.
