What jet would you most like to see in an upcoming J-Power/Skyangel mini-jet release?

Here's a poll, for the fun of it. I tried to keep the length of the list down by focusing on plane types that I've seen proposed in the existing threads for the series, but not including too off-the-wall stuff. And I did NOT completely comb back through the entire thread, so my apologies if I missed a model you proposed. I left off F-14 and F-111, because the complication of the swing-wing (cost/weight/space etc.) makes it seem unrealistic to expect in this series. For the F-15, I put two choices: small/single/bifurcated like the existing F/A-18 model, or big twin-motor like the new SU-34 model.

Only one choice is allowed in this poll. If you select more than one, only one of your picks will take (and it might not have been your first choice).

I chose the Mirage , that could be one seriously fast jet as long as it didnt have those ugly oversized mickey mouse ear intakes like the others.

I like the T-38 or F-5. Easy to make it fast!

You forgot about the 'ole F-4...

Something European , the US jets are done to death in every size , nice looking jets but they get boring when every other thread is the same.

I would like to see any that are easy to hand launch overhead style, eg Harrier/AV8b, A6, Corsair or other mid to high wing configurations

I voted Mig-21. Should have the potential to be quick, and would make a great adversary for the glut of US jets available

That said, a Hawker Hunter is the one I really want.

I went with the Vampire , I like the older style jets . I would love a Strikemaster / Jet Provost about 24" span ! Ideal for a 50mm EDF .

just as a heads up bajora said that we can expect a gripen, u2, and mirage in the next batch(after the a6 and a7)
I picked the vampire cause its an amazing looking plane, and i just love the first jets. its also not american which is a huge bonus just too many of our jets.

I think a few old Luftwaffe jets should have made the list:

ME-262 (twin)
Arado 234 (twin)
HE-162
TA-183
ME P.1101

These represent something a little different rather than the regular jet we've seen dozens of times before.

I voted Mig-21 as it's sorely un-represented in the R/C world consider how many exist and are still being used today!
The only problem is that it's a tricky to model accurately - it's got a long, slender fuselage with ducting all the way through.

B-1 Bomber, twin 50's or 40's. and instead of having the wings fully extended or fully swept...how about mid swept?

I'm still waiting for a good F-106 Delta Dart. Yeah, I know, I say that with every poll, but no one's done it yet, so I have to dream.
