Dynam Meteor compared to the HK 70mm sport jet

Any comments on which one is best? i like both and both are basically the same, but which one is the better bang for your buck?

The Sport Jet is a great flying jet & built by one of, if not the best foam edf manufactures...Freewing. The Sport jet is without ESC leaving you to choose an ESC, I personally would go with the Dlux 55amp or the Trust 55 amp esc.

The Meteor does come complete with ESC & from the vids I've seen is also a great flyer, & from what I have read & flies fast with 5s, I have read a few issues with elevator authority on the meteor though there is a fix, just look up the Meteor thread.

Honestly it would have to come down to which you prefer the look of, I have flown the Sport jet & it's a great flyer.

I did plan on buying a HobbyKing 60amp with 4amp BEC. I have heard that there isnt enough power on stock 4s battery? is that the case? should i go to the 5s? i have Zippy Flightmax 30c batterys which should work great with the 60amp ESC .

Really i think it has (sport jet) has great power for it's intended purpose, by all means nothing stoping you adding more power if not satisfied with the stock setup....I would wait till after a few good flights to determine that though.

I've had both, and I'd take the Meteor by a mile. Just do the elevator mod.
